At the end of the day, while Guillermina spent some time in a different area of Yard 4, Bambi, Maia, Mara, and Rana all hung out together as a foursome by the edge of the pond. It had been raining for a couple of hours and there was a nice bit of mud for all to splash in.
The four were making quite a racket until we turned the camera on (of course). After hanging out for a while, they all gradually began to make their way toward the fence, splitting in multiple directions.
You can see that Bambi finds a tree and decides to take a break to scratch, which is always a special post-mudbath treat. All four elephants walked to the fence for dinner. It was charming to see all of them being calm and light together, playing in the rain and vocalizing (even if we didn’t catch that part on video).
