This week, we opened up the Asian male habitat to Lady so that she could explore and enjoy the luscious grass and trees growing throughout. Because it was a new place for her, we encouraged her to move into the fresh, green space with a slice of everyone’s favorite: watermelon. She took the fruit right away and then made her way into the new habitat, where she’s been for several days now, munching away on the tall grass and palms until she gets drowsy. We caught the brief moment of her crunching down on the melon – an enjoyable sight and sound for everyone’s Sunday Smile.

Have you ever thought about cutting the watermelon pieces smaller so they don’t squeeze out the juice and some of the good parts in the middle?
Sara saysFebruary 26, 2023 at 9:09 pm
They seem to enjoy the bigger pieces so we leave them larger or whole.

Her sweetness makes me smile. Her gentle spirit shows itself in how she delicately eats her watermelon! Got to love that Lady!

At one point it seemed she looked right at the camera, as if thinking, “What? You never saw an elephant gulp down a whole watermelon?”
