It isn’t just when Guida is sick that Maia likes to stay over/lean on her while she sleeps. Although Maia and Guida had a confrontational relationship in the circus, they ended up being the best gift to each other at sanctuary.
We adore all three of the elephants in our care and would do anything for them, but the reality is we could never give them this. They provide each other with a 24-hour level of understanding, love, and support we cannot. We may provide a safe space, but they provide a true family.
And just in case you didn’t look closely, Guida has total cheesy squish face in this photo.
