Rana has continued to show interest in spending time in the male Asian yard on and off, though she remains respectful of Lady by keeping a distance that Lady is comfortable with. Over the weekend, Scott opened up the yard for Rana and she stopped in the entrance corridor on the way in to enjoy some palm leaves. The area is full of palms, which can be as tempting to an elephant as grass at times (Maia would probably attempt to eat them all). As with humans, it all depends on what you’re in the mood to eat. For Rana it was just an appetizer before her afternoon grazing and napping in the abundant shade.

Scott, I love how much You Love Elephants!

Wonder why they’re all of a sudden so interested in the male area. Maybe they know something we don’t!
Sara saysMarch 29, 2023 at 2:44 pm
It’s all new and full of fresh grass!
Melinda saysMarch 29, 2023 at 2:50 pm
Well that does explain it! I still hope Tamy will soon be a new resident!

That’s the plan. As soon as he gets his training from the staff at Mendoza, we can move forward with his transfer. But it will take some time.

If you would’ve told me a few years ago I’d get a big kick out of watching an elephant eat palms I might have thought you crazy….. but it’s Rana, and it’s the GSE, so of course it’s a hoot to watch the ol’ girl chow down!

Rana is such a sweetheart! Reminds me of Ronnie at TES. So happy these girls are there. This beautiful place💚

I couldn’t help but wonder (even before you mentioned Maia munching on them), if Miss Maia still enjoys plowing down the occasional palm? Rana looks especially beautiful in this video.

She much prefers to eat them these days.
