Today we will take a break from the elephants at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil and share some photos of Ramba (not Rana) enjoying a mud bath with Caro in Chile. For those of you who don’t know Ramba, you can check out her webpage to learn her story.
Ramba has a little bit of a limp going on this week, and we are trying to decipher if it’s her foot or that she had been off of her joint supplement for two weeks because the supplier had run out of stock. There is one small spot that is a bit suspicious on her foot, that Caro and Consu are going to look into more. It can indeed be that she has a tiny thorn or sliver in her foot- we have seen it before. Everything else with her is fine, so at this point, we’re not too worried.
For those that know Ramba, we’re still working on her import permits along with the other elephants that live outside of Brazil. We are hoping to be able to share an update of the new approach in getting the permits, we just have to wait for a couple more pieces to be in place. We will update when we can, but know we are trying. Not just us, but a team made up of numerous organizations and businesses from three different countries in South America.
But in the meanwhile, enjoy her sweet face, smile and how much joy she brings out of a simple mud bath.
