The grass is beginning to come up in Chile, giving Ramba the ability to graze a little bit. Even though the grass is limited, Ramba will still spend hours collecting it bit by bit. This is one of the ‘little’ things that so many elephants in captivity go without, yet it’s not little to them at all.
When Ramba arrived at the roadside zoo, from the circus, she walked past her cut-up fruit and vegetable treats and started grazing. She then dusted a few times, drank from the pond, and immediately went back to grazing. It’s part of being an elephant. Soon Ramba will have all of the grass she could possibly eat, along with many types of other natural forage.
And let’s not forget- other elephants.

I wonder if Ramba had any veggies or fruits when she was in the circus? Did she know what this food was?
She was happy to able to graze. I know she never got to do that in the circus and I know this is a normal and healthy thing
with elephants in their natural habitat. Bless her heart.

It’s so wonderful Ramba is able to experience the freedom to graze as she pleases. I warms my heart…….
