Guillermina Charges Through

By now, we all know that Guillermina brings her own special energy to sanctuary life. She often moves with a purpose and at a quick rate of speed. This is, of course, in contrast to some of the other elephants who prefer a much slower pace. 

In this video, you can see (from L to R), Mara, Rana, and Bambi having a serene afternoon of grazing near one another. Guille was clearly feeling a different vibe and didn’t seem interested in the activities the other girls were engaged in. So what we essentially have here is a quick portrait of how things can sometimes go at sanctuary: “The Powerpuff Girls” are having a calm few moments, while Guille comes trucking through on her way to who knows where. It’s an utterly charming moment that shows elements of all four elephants’ personalities.

    She just looks so powerful, and beautiful of course! The bird song is wonderful to hear, I wonder if there are more species now that the land use has changed, many more trees and shrubs and grasses, and additional mammals maybe? I would love to hear more of this aspect of GSE!

      It’s not so much that there are new animals, as it is animals returning to their native habitat as the land heals.

    This so made me laugh out loud when Guille walked by. It instantly reminded me of the movie FUNNY FARM with Chevy Chase and the Irish Setter they adopted and it immediately ran away but would randomly run across the landscape in the movie afterwards! 🤣

      Ha! I remember that, too. Guillermina can be a silly girl for sure.

    Ha ha! This looks like it was scripted. “Ok Guille, on the count of 5 I want you to walk quickly past the camera, alright?” Guille: “Got it.”
