It seems that Maia and Rana have been finding moments to spend a bit of time together lately. A few days ago, near breakfast time, Rana walked into the yard where Maia was relaxing and the two stood near each other for a while. Because Maia can be keen to interact with Rana when Rana is on her own, we thought Maia might follow her down to the barn for breakfast, but she opted out at the last minute. The next day, the two of them were sharing a yard again and Maia got a bit playful – so they had a sweet moment of social interaction before parting ways.
The following day, Mara, Bambi, and Rana had come to the barn for Mara’s treatment and decided to follow Scott back into the habitat because they know he leaves some extra food for them to find at night. Instead of sticking with the other two, Rana decided to head toward the neighboring yard where Maia was hanging out. During his final evening check-in, Scott saw that Rana and Maia were still together, standing next to each other, and very relaxed sharing space.
