While sometimes we find Maia and Guida deep within the habitat and in different areas, like the video from yesterday, other days they are side by side and ready to be fed.
Sometimes people ask about the girls being apart, as if it is a bad thing. Them being comfortable not being next to each other all of the time isn’t negative in any way. Some of the elephants we have worked with would panic a bit if their friend walked off while they were napping. It was usually due to being insecure. Maia and Guida are both confident ladies who do love their time together, but are also comfortable wandering away if one wants a drink and the other does not or if they simply want to be somewhere else.
