We’ve had a number of really nice rain storms lately which, as you know, make the elephants happy. Rain means mud and mud can often bring out silly behavior in the girls. That was the case on this day with Guillermina.
The video, taken from one of our observation cameras, has no sound. But you can still see how Guille is embracing some playful moments during the shower. She lays down and gets lots of good mud squishing done, really leaning into it on her side – even making sure to get her face nice and muddy. After standing up to give herself a little bath, she returns to her comfortable sitting position, scratching her bum and just generally embracing an afternoon of fun, as any 24-year old elephant should.

I so love these videos of Guille embracing sanctuary life with joy and gusto! With the help from her ellie and human pals, she seems well on her way to emotional and physical healing!

Did you see those leg kicks??? Ahhh, youth!
Nancy Crider saysDecember 8, 2022 at 4:23 pm
Heartwarming to see Guille having such a good time in the rain after being deprived of this simple pleasure for so many years. She clearly loves mud and water!

Wonderful to watch Guille enjoy her spa treatment.
Just wondering is there a human vs elephant age comparison?
Sara saysDecember 8, 2022 at 5:26 pm
There isn’t really. The ages are somewhat similar to humans, but their lifespan is shorter. The reality is that captivity has such a significant impact on lifespan – almost cutting the average in half, so that makes any comparison convoluted.

Oh my!! My very first thought was I wish Pocha could see her girl now. Happy, joyfully playing in the rain.❤️🐘

She must think she’s in heaven, mud, rain, grass, freedom!! So happy for her and I’m sure her mother would be thrilled to see her progress. Sweet girls, glad they’re helping her be part of the heard. Thanks for sharing, loved it!
