There have been a number of little parties among the elephants in the last few days, and we think that Rana may be the lady initiating them. She has been light and silly and playful with the others. On this morning, Rana was on her way to get her checkups, but she postponed going in the treatment chute until she’d had a celebration with her friends. Only after did she decide it was time to visit her caregivers.
In this video you can hear some deep rumbles coming from Rana and Bambi, along with some of Mara’s squeaky replies. It’s been charming to see such a playful spirit emerge from the “grandma” of our group.

Love, love, love seeing these happy and contented ellies!

Before following the sanctuary I never would’ve thought of animals such as elephants acting silly. However, a synonym for silly is “giddy”. Maybe they are just so so very ecstatic to be there they can’t help themselves sometimes! 🐘 🐘 🐘

I could listen to this all day! Were the trumpets also from Rana?
Sara saysMay 15, 2023 at 5:16 pm
Yes, Rana was making the trumpets. Bambi was rumbling and trumpeting and Mara was making her little “err” noise.
