Bambi Is a Noisy Drinker

It seems that while Rana was having a quiet morning moment with her sister, Bambi was just behind being very… Bambi. She started the day in her typical style, having a very noisy time drinking from the waterers Scott installed throughout the habitat last year. She joyously drinks her fill as we see Rana look off to the distance at Maia, while Mara stands quietly beside. Some days we wake up feeling contemplative, and other days we ease into the morning more gently. The full spectrum is on display here with these four elephants.

    Precious! She enjoys her water!!

    Wondering what the average volume of water is than an elephant can hold in her trunk – Bambi seemed very thirsty.

      It differs between African and Asian elephants and the age and size of the elephant. Studies range pretty wildly, from 8 liters to 14 – so it really depends.

    Great video, thank you. These animals are endlessly fascinating, Observing them for long, slow stretches in this way creates an intimacy that’s hard to get with any other creature.
