Lady Gives Herself a Dusting

As you can see in this video, Yard 5 is flourishing with lots of green, tasty grass for Lady to enjoy. However, she’s taken a break from eating on a slightly drizzly morning to give herself a good dusting of dirt and mud. Although there are sand and dirt piles throughout the habitats, Lady is using her nails to dig up some fresh dirt (one of the ways wild elephants keep their nails short) right where she is. She makes sure to cover her head, back, and belly, seeming content to enjoy this simple moment of her day. 

All of the elephants are enjoying the mud. Each year during the rainy season, when they are covered in dirt, dust, and sand, they are especially lovely girls. They can be so feisty and playful during and after the showers, so, as one of our caregivers said, beneath the thick coats of mud, their eyes tell the real story. And Lady’s countenance looks as pleased as can be.
