Rana Rumbles and Trumpets

This video proves that Rana is ridiculously charming no matter what vocalization she makes.

If you listen carefully, you can hear Maia and Guida off in the distance. Around the five second mark, you can hear a trumpet. Just after that, there’s a good closeup of Rana’s ‘finger,’ and you can see how it vibrates as she rumbles. These are her ‘big girl’ trumpets, versus her small sounding, deflated trumpets, which are just as cute.

A beautiful thing about this video is how light and sweet her eyes are. With elephants, we generally watch the entire face, but eyes are always critical. Rana has such a lovely presence about her here. A lifetime away from how they looked before coming to the sanctuary, just a few months ago.
