Guille and Maia at the Mud Wallow

This video captures one of those times when you’re trying to film a moment and the elephants have something different in mind. Here, Guillermina is playing in the water, giving herself an especially thorough bath, when Maia decides to enter the picture, blocking the view. 

But, there’s a wonderful bonus to Maia’s entrance: we get to see her beautiful eyelashes, her stunning eyes, and her lovely wrinkles. Perhaps Guille wanted to play with her friend, because she slowly exits the mud wallow shortly after Maia passes and heads in that direction.

    Others have said it, I’ve said it, and I can’t help it, I just will never get over seeing Guille having a life in such surroundings after what she had (and didn’t have) before she came to sanctuary.

    I love seeing them spend tine together. Since Guida’s passing, it’s good to see Maia with Guille and being like a big sister to her.
