Rana has started to vocalize more now that she doesn’t seem worried about overstepping her boundaries in her relationship with Ramba. Sometimes Ramba will be 30 yards away and Rana will bellow, calling out to her friend, even though she is right there. Funnily enough, it scared our maintenance guys who couldn’t see the elephants, just heard them, and thought they were fighting. It’s a big noise.
Ramba isn’t vocalizing back at this point, except for rumbles, which she is full of. She does come over, so it’s not like she is ignoring her, she just hasn’t become super vocal yet. We think if Maia finds her silly again, and goes through her repertoire of noises, maybe it will encourage Ramba as well.

Their friendship is truly wonderful. You can almost feel Ramba giddy inside with happiness. Hopefully Maia will want to join in soon. As you say, she will when she’s ready. Love these girls so much. ??????

I know you have over 2,500 acres but how many acres are available to our three ladies right now?

Yes, they are communicating and this is a good thing. I love to talk myself, but I am not a talking machine.

I love these girls! It makes smile, cry, just overcome with emotions to know how happy each girl is so happy and to know that they know they are safe, loved, and just free, I want this for all the elephants. Thank you all so much!
