Guillermina Has Her Own Party of One

VOLUME UP! You may remember Lady’s famous “Party of One,” which we were only able to film from afar, because we didn’t want to interrupt. Now it’s Guillermina’s turn to have her own celebration – even though she technically wasn’t completely by herself.

As we’ve mentioned, the weather has been a little chilly, which can sometimes make the elephants a bit silly. Guille had been with Maia and Bambi in the morning, and they were in hearing distance when Guillermina decided to have a ball. Caregiver Shirlei was standing quite a distance away and said you could see where Guille must have been since there were sticks and branches being tossed in the air and dust and dirt flying around. This probably went on for about 10 minutes at full throttle. 

This video doesn’t actually show Guille’s party, but you can hear the to-do that was happening while we were recording. The recording is from the house at the top of the hill, just for reference as to how loud she really was. If anyone got close enough to see her, she would likely stop, thinking there might be food on the way or just wondering why we showed up. From the sound of things, Guillermina was having a great time. Once she was finished, she joined the others, her energy perhaps expended for a while.

    What a magnificent creature! Imagine hearing that while out for a walk. I love that there’s a mystery about what started the trumpeting.

    Only see trees in the video. Her noises are awesome but would have liked to see her too.

      We did explain that we weren’t able to capture it on film, so we thought readers and listeners might be interested in hearing the party.

    Oh to know what she is saying!! Could it be she is calling and trumpeting to Pocha? Wondering where she is? When she doesn’t get an answer, she is happy to join her friends. Love this happy girl.❤️🐘

    We could all learn from Guille. From time I’d love to toss sticks and leaves about and shout joyously. In lieu of not having a trunk, we could leap about.
