Maia Touches Ramba

So….the video is in slow motion. The reason being that while all of us were cleaning the barn and doing prep work, Cassius (who is filming Ramba’s story) happened to be filming something else when Ramba and Maia met up at the gate. And it happened quickly so he was the only one to get it on film, but his camera was recording in slow mo.

Unlike Rana, Maia wasn’t hesitant to reach right out and touch Ramba. It was somewhat funny because Ramba seemed a little surprised that there was no feeling things out and Maia just went for it. The entire interaction only lasted about a minute before Ramba walked away and went back into the third yard- which seems to be her favorite so far.

Ramba continues to do well and looks more and more like she has been at the sanctuary for years. She’s now a nice shade of red, after all of her mud baths and dusting. She is learning that the four wheeler is the food truck and now follows when she sees it is loaded up. Her and Rana continue to share space and do their little trunk touching dance, although many other parts of their body have touched at this point. It’s all quite sweet and going very well.

thanks to FiLMiC Pro and Go Film for being here and sharing this clip, but we’ll talk more about them later

    I wonder if Maia will be the one to bring down Ramba’s defences. Maia seemed very excited and engaged. Ramba’s tail was sticking out before she pulled away. Loved every minute!
