Nursery Unit  August   31, 2017 During the public visit today we watched Pare, Malkia and Mteto decide not to enjoy the lucerne pellets as usual after their milk bottles. Instead the others like Kauro, Maramoja, Mbegu, Sana Sana, Tagwa, Mundusi were all competing to enjoy these piles while Pare, Malkia and Mteto decide to go into the mud wallow and busy themselves spinning around, rolling and bumping against each other which really stole the attention of the visitors. They stayed there for the duration and were very reluctant to leave the mud pool even when the others had started to walk out to the forest. As they ran out of the pool trumpeting and protesting their departure, Malkia deliberately ran through to the other side of the rope cordon, intentionally muddying some of the visitors and leaving them laughing at her deliberate actions! She then happily sped off into the forest, stamping and trumpeting as she went.
