This morning’s Ramba ear check is brought to you by Maia. ?
Although the girls were all away from the barn this morning, we had to bring Ramba back so that we could read her microchip. And as we brought her back, everyone else came as well.
All of the elephants that come from outside of Brazil need to be microchipped. That chip has to be confirmed a short time after their arrival and officially filed with Ibama. This is so we can prove she is who we say she is, and we’re not illegally trafficking elephants. We don’t have a chip reader at this point, so we borrowed one from a local vet, but needed to get it back to them. So, today was the day.
The microchip is injected into the empty (SQ) space behind their ear, on their neck. Unfortunately, elephants have a lot of empty space there, and the chip tends to migrate, making it hard to impossible to find after some time. We found Ramba’s, although it ended up lower on her neck and closer to her shoulder. But it still read, and that is all we needed.
Rana, Ramba, and Maia are all sharing the same space. Rana and Maia were super sleepy and will most likely nap before wandering. Ramba was much more awake, so she started exploring right away.

Yep, I had a cat at one time and he would not wear a collar so I had him microchip. This is a good thing.
Everyone is getting along and seems happy. I am so happy for GSE!

Ramba has to make up some time in this heavenly sanctuary. She can nap later but exploration is more important. So happy they all share the same habitat!

Chipping is wonderful! That way, whenever one of them wanders off into the jungle you can read which one is off the reservation! 🙂 Kidding, of course. But I’m so happy they are now together and getting along well. Thank you GSE!

I have loved elephants for a VERY long time, but you guys have made me love them more. I’ve learned more than I ever knew. They are sweet angels, and thank God they can now have a decent life. I am very anxious that Pocha and Guillermina join you. Big hugs to you all.
