It has been a very long day, and I’m sorry if this comes out as a ramble, but we wanted to write a quick note. This morning Maia was still near Guida’s body, the area showed that she has been walking all around her at different points. There was also Rana dung on the other side of the fence, right where Guida was. We know she was there, but we’re not sure if she went over to her.
This morning Maia and Rana were kept in the yards closer to the barn during Guida’s necropsy. The first time Maia walked by Rana, she stopped, didn’t smell or touch her with her trunk, but leaned gently into her and stayed there for a few minutes. Rana is being respectful and allowing Maia her space, which shows Rana learned from her first lessons with Maia and Guida. Later on, Maia came up by Rana again and stuck her trunk in Rana’s mouth. Rana has allowed all of the interactions, being soft and sweet, but also watchful of all of the emotional cues Maia is giving her.
They both seem ok, Maia is a little quiet, but all things considered, is doing well. Once everything was done, the gates were opened back up, and both ladies now have access to where Guida is buried.
