Mara enjoyed her first dip in the mud wallow!
We arrived to drop off dinner to Rana and Mara last night and found the two elephants between the pond and the mud wallow in Yard 4. Mara looked pleased with herself. Half her face and much of her body had huge chunks of mud stuck to it.
Rana was standing next to her but did not have any mud on her body. Kat joked that Rana must’ve just been standing there for moral support during Mara’s Mud Party of One.
With such a vast space, we don’t always know everything each elephant does each day, but we can pretty much always tell when it’s a mud wallow day because the evidence is…thick and muddy.
