Normally, when trumpet and rumble parties break out among the elephants, they are initiated by Rana, Mara, and Bambi. But we recently heard a happy ruckus that originated from elsewhere – and we don’t know why or by whom.
Rana and Mara were grazing quietly close to the barn when we heard a whole chorus of happy trumpets but, from where we were located, we couldn’t see any other elephants and weren’t exactly sure where Maia, Guillermina, and Bambi were. Amidst all of the fun, we heard Guille squeaking, which is something she hasn’t done since chatting with her mother. It was an absolute joy to hear.
By the time we got to where Guille was, she had clearly been in the pond and was calmly walking along the fence with no indication of the excitement she’d just been a part of. We don’t know who else was enjoying the moment with Guille, but there was the potential that three elephants were out in the habitat having a blast (although we suspect it was Guille and Bambi). Regardless, it is lovely to see how Guille is continuing to evolve and starting to be more joyful.
