Ramba’s First Access to The Crate

After a long day of waiting for an inspector to come, Ramba’s crate was placed in her yard and she had access at the very end of the night. This wasn’t to try to get her to go inside, this way just so she could see what it was while there was still daylight.

We generally let them go about things at their own pace. Elephants are so smart and curious that they often just walk in on their own to check things out. Ramba will have access to her container 24/7 so she can explore it as she chooses.

    Another day nearer to her new home. I am sure her current carers will sorely miss her but they do know that she is the one that needs sanctuary and deserves a better life.

    THANKS SCOTT!! Will RAMBA get padding on the Floor and sides of shipping container? So she does get rub marks on her body from stress ? I LOVE her❤️?❤️! I think she is older than her specified age too! Her chewing seems slower, R her teeth OK, Hopefully RAMBA will go further in tomorrow, She needs WATERMELLON ??

      Hi Sheila, no, the floor has to be able to drain urine and water. There is no padding on the side, but they are smooth, she shouldn’t get rub marks anywhere. She has an overgrown upper molar, common for elephants that don’t have a proper natural diet. And although she eats grass, she doesn’t get a lot of browse. And she does get watermelon regularly. 😉

    So wonderful 🙂 Thank you Scott for taking the time to make the video! I was wondering if at some point there would be a bit of film or pictures of the stickers from donors on the side of the crate? Someone might have asked this before and I missed it. Can’t wait till she is at sanctuary!

      If there is time Scott can do a quick video of the stickers, there are too many for individual photos. There is a lot going on there and the priority is getting Ramba’s energy up, improving her diet, and getting her acclimated to the crate, all while getting the final logistical steps in place. But we will try. There are already some photos up on an earlier Facebook post that many people were enlarging to see their names, but that is all we have done up until this point.
