After spending dinnertime with her friends, Guillermina decided to take a walk around the habitat in search of some hidden treats for dessert. She came upon a few bites of hay, which she grabbed and (very) quickly began to carry away to eat. You can see that she scoops up quite a large trunkful and doesn’t want to drop a morsel. For Guille, this may have been a case of “keep your friends close and your snacks closer.” She finally found a spot and enjoyed all of her food in just a couple of mouthfuls.

Guille – a born strategist who has learned many Sanctuary lessons – what a girl!
It always surprises me when the elephants go for the hay when there is all that lush greenery around.
Sara saysDecember 24, 2022 at 7:01 pm
They definitely graze all day on the natural stuff. Hay is just an extra treat.
Terry saysDecember 24, 2022 at 11:41 pm
Guille looks so delighted and excited about her find!!!
The world may have Door Dash, Uber, To Go Meals, but we have Guillie, our snack Queen!!!

She looks a better weight. Still fast walking which also be good for her. Food must be a comforter too, maybe she’s doing less grazing atm? Maybe it’s a quirk she’ll always have but so much growing to yet yet with the loved Guille. We all wish zoo life hadn’t killed her mother. =(
Kat Blais saysDecember 25, 2022 at 7:44 am
she is a much better weight and building up muscle, but still has a little bit to go. guille grazes very well, but it’s a new batch of beautiful hay and all the girls are loving it. she’s definitely a foodie.
