Rana Thinks Bambi’s Snack Looks Delicious


Rana, Bambi, and Mara are leisurely enjoying their afternoon snack when Rana starts to eye Bambi’s pile of hay. Rana very casually walks over, takes a trunkful of Bambi’s hay, and keeps walking. Bambi seems completely unfazed and finishes her mouthful before heading back to finish what was originally Rana’s pile. You’ll notice that, of course, neither Bambi nor Rana touch Mara’s food.

One of the unique things about captive elephants who live in habitats where natural food is available to them at all times is that there is little to no competition for food. Because they can eat what they find around them in nature, there is generally no food aggression and most elephants don’t seem to be bothered by other elephants taking a bit of what’s been set out for them. It’s just one more benefit to providing a wild habitat for elephants.

      The cameras we have set up now have the capability of being live webcams. It is the bandwidth that is an issue that will require an expensive system set up because of the limitations of what is available here. So, for now, we are focusing on expansion, so we can rescue more elephants. Then, we will try to sort out setting up a system for live webcams.
