Maia and Guillermina seem to be very good for each other these days. The two of them have been spending time together on a regular basis and it’s nice to see our most active elephants roaming about the habitat as a pair; it gives them both the opportunity to celebrate the more energetic sides of themselves while allowing everyone else to remain morning sleepyheads.
Truly, the girls are walking all over. One minute, you’ll see them wandering near the east side of Yard 4, then shortly thereafter they have crossed half of the yard, followed by a trip to the pond and then back again. They appear to be going wherever, whenever. But no matter where they roam, they always remember when mealtime should be. If it’s only a few minutes “late”, they go looking for their delivery 4-wheeler and human. Some things, it seems, will never change.
