The Girls Enjoy Your Valentine’s Day Treats!

On Valentine’s Day, you sent donations to each of the elephants as “valentines” in the form of fruit. We made sure to label each piece and made sure that all of the girls were given delicious veggies, fruits (they all got custom watermelons) – a buffet of their favorite treats. 

We put together a video of all five girls enjoying your generous gifts. All five ladies were given extra treats with their breakfast, but we took these videos when they received their second round of extras during dinner. (You can see in the clip that Bambi “shared” some of Mara’s surprises, but we evened the amount out by circling around and giving Bambi her watermelon, while giving Mara some of Bambi’s extras. Thanks again and please enjoy their happy reactions.

    OMG!!!! That was awesome! I had to LOL when I watched the “sharing” portion of the film. The girls are so beautiful. Love them to the moon and back, as I tell my grandchildren!

    You guys are sooooo good to these girls. And thankfully, none of them are named Alessandra or something like that, cause how would you fit THAT on a watermelon!?!?
