Guillermina is known for being an outgoing, fast-moving, busy elephant most of the time. She seems to have so much energy that she’s learning to channel – a big contrast from the older, more relaxed girls that make up the rest of the herd.
But this week has been a particularly calm and quiet week for Guille. Instead of zooming around everywhere, she has been walking more calmly and interacting with the others in a more gentle manner. She’s had some nice, quiet moments with the other elephants over the course of the week. In fact, she and Maia were seen sleeping side-by-side, both with their trunks over the fence. It seems that sometimes it can be good to take a nice, relaxing break – something that Guillermina seemed to need.

Call me morbid, but I worry about her. Being so young, chances are she will outlive all of her friends and the sadness that will bring her.I am so thankful for the Sanctuary to give her the freedom she deserves.
Sara saysMay 16, 2023 at 2:32 pm
No matter what happens, she will have the freedom of sanctuary life.

She’s strutting … just like in her TikTok video … “here’s my strut, do, do, do strutting my way on over to you. 🙂

Very glad to see she and Maia are still comfortably connected. It must has been lovely seeing them sleeping side by side with their trunks both over the fence taking some weight off! Adore them both. It sounds good she can now slow down sometimes, good for her, maybe she’s beginning to heal after her mother’s sudden tragic death?
Sara saysMay 17, 2023 at 8:41 am
As you know, healing is a complicated process. She’s likely healing and mourning, as do most.
Patricia saysMay 18, 2023 at 2:08 am
Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful?

Guille has had a rough start in life but her mama Pocha even more so. I still don’t know how she survived in that concrete pit raising her baby girl when you see what she endured for so many years to give her little girl life it makes your heart sad and happy both…God bless
