Now that we’ve had some rain, the elephants have livened up quite a bit. They seem to be having more and more random parties for small reasons – or reasons we aren’t privy to. Either way, there are happy gatherings and vocalizations which we can hear all the way up the hill.
Oftentimes, we check on the girls if we’re hearing abnormal vocalizations or an unexpected number of trumpets or rumbles, just to make sure that everyone is doing well. As we’ve mentioned before, sometimes by the time we get to where the elephants are, they have already finished their parties and have gone back to grazing or enjoying the day.
That scenario is reflected in this video because, just before we started filming, there was a great, celebratory ruckus. Rana had been getting her treatment after breakfast and was reunited with Mara and Bambi when she was done. You can see Mara and Rana together, being rather affectionate with each other and Bambi walks into the frame at the end. Even though we didn’t capture their trumpeting this time, there were many short occurrences that continued throughout the afternoon.
P.S.: A new episode of Global Rumblings is out this week. In Episode 21, Kat and Scott continue sharing about Ramba’s journey once at Parque Safari, her temporary home before arriving to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil.
