Ithumba Unit  November   30, 2018 It was a cold and wet morning today after we had 28mm of rainfall last night. The orphans did not stay in the compound long and almost walked straight out to browse.

All the orphans were spread out and browsing. Namalok and Lemoyian started splashing soil on their backs with Lemoyian covering his wounds with clumpy soil as well. Later they walked to the mud bath for their milk. It was still very cold so the elephants didn't play in the water after their milk bottles.
While the others were browsing Sapalan was playing with the wet and loose soil, throwing it on his head and back while browsing. Oltaiyoni on the other side was playing in the mud with her ears open. Siangiki and Tusuja were browsing and playing in mud together with Roi enjoying the browse with her ears open. Later the orphans walked back home in the evening, leaving Laragai's group behind to come later. We recorded 28mm of rainfall today and did not see any other elephants.
