We like to make sure each of our elephant residents receives equal time in the limelight because they are all equally perfect. And we know everyone has an elephant they resonate more with. It’s always a bit of a challenge to write regular posts about Maia because, well, she’s Maia.
Maia is a super easy elephant. She is cheeky, silly, a little rough around the edges, but we wouldn’t want her any other way. The elephant she is now is vastly different than the elephant who arrived here 3 years ago. She has worked hard to learn to trust and open up emotionally, and how easy she is now, is a testament to how far she has come. We are very proud of her.
She makes us laugh every day, but there generally isn’t a lot to say in regards to regular updates on her. Although lately she and Rana have been spending more time side by side again, and Maia checks in with Lady through the fence from time to time, her days are a little bit of eat, nap, float, nap, float, and repeat. But she definitely isn’t complaining. It’s her life, her choice, and it seems to bring her immense amounts of joy. And if she’s happy, we’re happy, and we hope you feel the same. ❤️
Video of Maia eating dinner. It’s peaceful and quiet, and unexciting in the best way. She is completely perfect and gorgeous, just like always. (If you watch to the end, you can watch her shove a massive amount of hay into her mouth.) Rana ate dinner near her, a little out of camera range.
