Maia is well known to be the sanctuary’s resident sleepyhead. She will fall asleep after meals, during foot treatments, or basically any time she wants a nap. Maia has also been known to like some affection when she’s sleepy and will push her stomach through the horizontal fence posts when she’s lying down, to get some belly rubs from her caregivers.
Here, you can see her just barely managing to keep her eyes open after breakfast. Still, she seems to want some extra closeness from Scott, so she decides to hold his hand with her nose. He’s happy to comply.
P.S.: Aren’t those long eyelashes gorgeous?
