Know Your Elephant: Identifying Maia

For the next five Saturdays, we are going to give you some tips on things to look for if you need help identifying each elephant. Sometimes it can be hard for those of us who don’t live with the girls and see them every day to tell one from another, especially from certain angles.

Of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list of each individual’s unique features, but there are some helpful notes that you can use moving forward. This week, we take a look at the lovely Miss Maia and a few of the things that are special about her.

    Wonderful idea! I try to challenge myself on identifying the girls so these tips will certainly help. I smile at fuzzy top Maia (she is so cute)

    Great idea! Thanks 🤗

    Maia is the easiest of the girls for me to ID-she looks more rounded to me, than the others 😁 Tips are welcome!

    In my little collection of downloaded photos, I especially see a ton of freckles on her trunk and that the long hair on her head is matted with mud and hay!

    I love this idea! Thank you!
    It’s the “sometimes” nature of the pink pigment that throws me off.
    Looking forward to the rest of the girls’ giveaway details!

    What a fun idea! I love how you look after us who love them from afar, by giving us so many great things to learn about our special ladies.

    Great idea! And maybe by the time the five Saturdays are over, we’ll have a couple more Ellies to identify 🙂
