Bambi Wants Training All To Herself

BambiAfter breakfast, Bambi was getting settled into her training session with caregiver Tina. Guillermina showed up quickly after they began. Guille was being respectful and keeping her distance, but seemed to want to participate herself. She was making her squeaky noises and started copying the behaviors that Bambi was being asked to do. 

But today, Bambi didn’t seem in the mood for antics with Guille. She made it very clear that she wanted to do training on her own, without sharing the attention with Guillermina. Guille was attempting to put her foot on the fence and mirror Bambi, as she likes to do. Bambi wanted to discourage Guille, so she wrapped her nose around Guille’s foot and pulled it off the fence. It wasn’t an aggressive action on Bambi’s part; she was just making it clear that she wanted her space and her moment with the caregivers. 

Eventually, Guillermina backed off, walking into the habitat to look for snacks. Bambi was able to have her special time and extra reward snacks without having to share with anyone else. 

P.S.: Today’s podcast sees Ramba finally making the last leg of her journey to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. After many years of waiting, Ramba is able to finally touch sanctuary soil. Listen on our website or on the podcast platform of your choice.

    Oh my….Bambi. being abit selfish today with Care giver TINA. Oh dear now Bambi has hurt Guillies feelings. Ahh that’s unusual Bambi is bossy to Guillie. It’s kinda funny in a sense seeing Bambi pulling Guillies foot off the fence to correct her. I think this is Bambi not wanting to share any treats. Oh these funny 🐘🐘ladies😍

    I love the daily soap opera that goes on at the sanctuary. The fact that the girls get to have friendships and make choices is fantastic.
