Rana and Ramba have been swimming in the pond before, but this is the first time we’ve seen this behavior occurring between the two of them in- or out- the pond. It’s something our long-time followers saw happen between Maia and Guida. Ramba has been here for a little over seven weeks (!!) and seeing this type of behavior between her and another elephant so quickly is amazing. It’s a protective behavior that demonstrates how close Rana and Ramba have become.
This is a long video but it’s worth watching until the end. It’s a milestone that tells you they trust each other fully, and the fact it’s occurring in a pond (complete with Ramba’s “snorkel trunk”) is just… well, you’ll need to watch the video yourself!
