It may seem as though Rana stays in the background of our elephant group, but that isn’t true. She tends to be a bit more understated than those like Bambi, who has a big personality, or Mara, who enjoys being the center of attention.
Rana is a much more subtle, quiet, and charming girl – but one who has a lot going on inside. Her personality can be complicated, but there are times when she has a softness and cuteness that is just melt-your-heart innocent. And, of course, she’s anything but innocent. But it’s undeniably endearing to see that she still has the ability to allow her inner child to come out and shine.

Do Asian elephants ever have tusks
Kat Blais saysNovember 11, 2021 at 5:02 pm
males do, females do not. they have pseudo tusks called ‘tushes’, but not all of them have them. Rana does on her left side.

Any time you want to post a video of her squeaks is fine with me. I’m just sayin.
Alana saysNovember 11, 2021 at 7:27 pm
If seeing her, like me, melted your heart, look for the clip of her squeaks. She will have you under her spell.

Rana is absolutely beautiful inside and out and full of sweetness and great character. I pray she is blessed with a long and happy life at GSE. Thank you Scott, Kat and staff for the love and care you give our girls.
