Ramba Needs Other Elephants


Cutie Miss Ramba seeing if her caregivers have anything special for her. Ramba is very aware of and dependent upon her caregivers. Her life is sterile, she has to rely on them for everything.

In many instances, facilities will use this scenario as an excuse to say their elephant is a ‘people elephant’ and won’t get along with other elephants. But just because they don’t have elephants in their life doesn’t mean they wouldn’t revel in the company of their own species. And when they are with other elephants, their humans become less important. And that’s the way it should be. You learn not to take offense. 

Ramba’s caregivers adore her, they are definitely a big part of the reason Ramba made it to this point. But Ramba has never fully opened her heart- she doesn’t ask for touch (although she likes company) and doesn’t seem to enjoy it when given to her. Aside from rumbles, she is mostly silent and hasn’t expressed her emotions through other vocalizations. Ramba has already shown us that she needs those who can truly understand her, that speak her language, and will stand side by side with her, day and night. She needs other elephants.

We don’t know how things will unfold when Ramba arrives, but at some point, we would expect to see her heart open up to the most significant thing missing in her life- a true family.

    I can’t come soon enough for this lovely elephant. Ramba will be so surprised when she finds there are two lovely new elephants waiting for her.

    People sometimes prefer animals over people but I am confident that elephants prefer each other. With multiple elephants coming in next year, each will pick their special friend and it will be wonderful to watch who pairs with who. Ramba, your Cinderella coach is ready, not much longer
