This video was taken last week from one of our habitat cameras. It is not as high-resolution as those we might take up close with our cameras or phones – but it captures the essence of the relationship between Mara, Bambi, and Rana so well that we had to share.
It was morning and Rana and Bambi had apparently lost Mara at some point. While the video has no sound, you can see that the two are bellowing and trumpeting and being a bit silly and playful. After a few minutes of continued calling, Mara finally comes into view. Bambi and Rana waste no time getting to their friend, and the three of them share some nice moments together before continuing on as a threesome.
