Scott and the Ladies at Sunset

As Scott narrates in the video, on this evening all five elephants had dinner near one another. Rana and Mara were together and joined by Maia; Guillermina and Bambi were eating nearby, with Guille helping Bambi make sure there were no scraps left from her meal. 

Scott is standing in a yard that’s separated from the elephants but, with the camera angle, it looks like he’s between them. He actually still has fences between himself and the other elephants. We cut the grass and brush of the yards down at the end of the rainy season to promote new growth at the beginning of the next rainy season and to prevent them from becoming fire hazards – so the lack of grass is a combination of being cut and it dying off from the dry season arriving. Though Bambi was still a little insecure about being near the others, she seems to do well when a friend is by her side. Guille is not just there for the extra food she might get from Bambi; she’s also being a caring friend who is staying at Bambi’s side.

    Wonderful seeing all the girls together. Especially happy to see Rana and Mara together. I agree with Scott. Bambi is feeling insecure about her vision. Hopefully her vision will not continue to deteriorate.
    Thank you Scott. 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘❤️

    Aw, thank you! How lovely this is! Every time I see them in the yards eating, walking around, playing in the pond, or whatever, I am so grateful that they get to be in a natural habitat and be with each other. Love you all, girls and humans and other animals nearby! 💖💞💗💞💖

    A gorgeous evening indeed!! Is Bambi’s eyesight worsening with both eyes, or just the one?

    Guille is learning friendship, love, and caring! Beautiful.
