Guillermina Tries To Share Everyone’s Food

Around dinnertime, Pocha, Guillermina, Mara, and Rana were all eating near one another. As expected, Guillermina finished her produce quickly and began to look around to see what her friends were doing. She walked up to Rana first and the two of them shared some food together. It wasn’t aggressive on Guille’s part – just having a snack with a friend. After that, Guille moved down the line of elephants, stopping to visit each one and eat together for a moment. No one seemed to mind much that they had a dinner companion. It was actually a charming moment of calm and a welcome moment among the four. 

Maia then showed up to have her meal, a little farther away from the others. It didn’t take long for Guillermina to realize that this meant the opportunity for more food. Maia, however, had different plans. Once she saw Guille headed her way, she gave her a solid stare that could only mean one thing: don’t touch my dinner. Guille got the message, but tried to see if a different approach might work anyway. She moved to the other side to no avail; then she tried to squeeze in but Maia blocked her with her head. Finally, Guillermina decided to scoot Maia out of the way using her rear end. That technique finally worked but, it was good natured and almost playful behavior between the two of them. Maia relented and allowed Guille to enjoy the rest of her hay.

    Previous posts of GSE have said that Gullie was fat from her days of little of NO exercise at the Mendoza Ecopark. Is Gullie getting enough exercise NOW?

    Nice. Sounds like the other ladies value the fun Guille brings more than their produce. Love it!

    Funny! It seems she’s learning herd behaviour, and being a kid sometimes is a must, and funny how they let her. She’s persistent!!

    Oooooo..hahaha…our sweet Guille is a gluten! I so wish girls were more stern and did not share their food. GiGi needs to lose more weight anyway! She is loved, and spoilt by all, and she knows it…..our baby in a family…:-)))
