It’s becoming more and more common to see Maia join Bambi, Mara, and Rana at meal times. Maia seems comfortable spending time with them at other parts of the day, too, but it’s a near-daily sight to witness them eating alongside one another. Maia sometimes keeps a few fence lengths of distance between herself and the others – as she does here – but at other times feels at ease standing much closer. It’s a continued encouraging sight that never fails to inspire, watching the group determine the dynamics that will work for them in a calm and measured way.
In this video you can see Rana, Mara, Bambi, and Maia with Scott. The methodical sound of their chewing is quite relaxing, as is the happy ear flapping.
