When it comes to breakfast or dinner time, the elephants tend to know the schedule of when food will arrive. While we don’t feed them on a strict timeline, there’s a window when, if they hear the 4-wheeler coming, the girls know that a meal is coming with it.
As you can see here, Rana – who sometimes takes a slower pace – definitely knows how to get where she wants to go with a quickness when she wants to. Her fused elbow doesn’t seem to slow her down when she’s on a mission. Rana also manages to stay in front of Mara, likely to make sure that she gets to the food first (even though everyone gets their own dedicated pile).
Bambi, however, had already beaten both of the other Powerpuff Girls to dinner. She’s even faster than they are and is motivated to move by her love of food. All three elephants got their dinner along the fence line before heading back into the habitat for the evening.
