Bambi and Mara Dusting

In this quiet video, you catch a glimpse of Bambi (in the back) and Mara (in front) dusting and relaxing in the habitat. However, those who truly know Mara can tell that she’s got a very mischievous look on her face. The closer she gets to the camera, the more she shows her “naughty little kid” demeanor. You can hear the water trough filling up in the background as she strides toward the caregiver – who decided it was time to stop filming and start giving Mara her attention.

P.S.: Some of you may remember that Mara’s right front ankle was injured when she was a calf. So, if you notice that her stride is off just a little, it’s completely normal for her.

    It always upsets me when you say an injury from when an elephant was a calf. Does this typically mean the injuries are caused by humans do you think? Would this be the case for Rana’s knee as well 😢

      the stories are always vague, but most likely from training, chaining, and the like. little bodies aren’t made to do some of the things they are trained to do and it can result in permanent injuries and malformation.

    Love her rascally approach! Made me wonder if they ever dust one another ‘for fun’ …or even a caregiver? Like splashing your friend in the swimming pool?

    I’m so glad Mara and the girls are safe and forever cared for at sanctuary. As John Lennon sang ” one day the world will live as one”.
