A Guillermina Sandwich

Bambi and Maia have been in the back of Yard 4 for several days now, with Guillermina joining them almost all of the time. She does go away to visit the other elephants, but always seems to come back to Bambi and Maia. 

Guille has been doing anything she can to put herself in the middle of the two girls. She’s making what we laughably call, “Guille sandwiches.” For instance, Maia and Bambi will be shoulder to shoulder, with virtually no room between them. Still, somehow Guille manages to squeeze herself in between the two – a very tight fit. Eventually, Bambi and Maia will ease her out of position and return to their prior arrangement. Of course, then Guille comes back to try again. This continues throughout the morning until Guillermina gets tired of the activity. It’s just another way the 25-year-old is keeping the elder stateswomen on their toes.

    LOL, my niece used to do the same thing when she was young and wanted to be “included” or was just craving a little attention. Guille showing she is still such a youngster, silly girl. Love the “Guille Sandwich”.
