Nursery Unit  June   29, 2018 Today Maxwell woke up earlier than usual. He was seen to be quite restless and moving up and down in his large stockade. Dust filled the air as the blind orphan stamped his feet on the ground. Later as the keepers were leading the elephant orphans out to the forest, they noticed a herd of buffalo near Maxwell’s stockade, and we realized that was the reason why Maxwell was so unsettled and stamping around his territory. As the orphans made their way out, the buffaloes began to move slowly away into the bushes. Sana Sana, Tagwa, Malkia and Malima were in the front line and doing little mock-charges at the buffaloes. They trumpeted and stamped around in the bushes, raising their wars high to make themselves appear big to the retreating buffaloes. Jotto, one of the big boys in the Nursery, mock-charged with them as well. Mapia and Ambo, although not at the front, trumpeted and kicked to support their older friends. Maktao, Musiara and Luggard with his bad leg preferred to remain close to the keepers and watch from behind.
