As the evenings get colder (the high 60s) the girls have begun to shift where they spend time in the habitat. Last night, Maia and Guida went up to the back of the fifth yard while Rana went into the hidden pasture, somewhere she has only gone with the two of them. Both areas are a bit warmer than the South side of the property.
Also, you may see some white or silver spots, smudges and stripes on the girls in photos of late. We give them mineral salts, and most of the time they ignore them. This week everyone has decided they’re fantastic, both to eat and to spray and rub on themselves. The salts are regarded as an ‘if they need it, they’ll eat it’ kind of thing and apparently, something in the change of seasons has triggered the need.

I find it fascinating all these little bits of information that we would never know. Thank you so much.

I always look forward to any news (and photos) on the girls esp now in light of the extremely disconcerting news coming out of Botswana. This will be an ongoing nightmare for these magnificent intelligent animals, esp for their vulnerable babies. God help them.
