Quick update- sorry for the delayed post. Scott was going to try to do a live, but internet didn’t hold out (see Live below that came in after this post was written up!!). I ran down to take care of the girls here, thinking it was going to happen, and came up and there was nothing. Sorry, you’ll have to settle for a photo of Bambi’s relaxed sweet face and the update that Scott shared with me.
Bambi is doing well, she is continuing her trend of- melon was good yesterday, but they’re gross today. Yesterday apples were gross, but today they are fantastic. It’s something we’ve seen in elephants before. She is also cutely demanding of the amount of food you give her. If you don’t put enough in her trunk, she will continue to leave it out to you until the proper amount has filled her nose. This afternoon was a 3 apple requirement.
The loud truck noises on stops are a distraction for her, but otherwise, she remains settled. We are keeping an eye on her on the camera throughout the journey, and she seems good. Scott will try to do a live later on, but this is a pretty barren stretch of the trip. Thankfully, it’s one we know well, and are familiar with all of the best places to stop that offer Bambi an area away from the noise and in the shade.
You can learn more here, or follow her journey on Bambi’s map of dots. We know you love to count them.
