It’s a short video, but it’s charming so we wanted to share.
In the foreground is Rana and in the bushes in Ramba. They had already been together before being fed and Ramba’s food was put down first because she’s a speed racer. Scott then drove off just a bit and put Rana’s food down.
Rana was already eating when it seems that she noticed Ramba was there in the bushes. When she stops flapping her ears and has her mouth slightly open, it’s because she’s watching and listening. The blowing noise is her being excited about it all. Her face is super soft and happy.
This touches on something we’ve talked about before, how elephants seem to have mini celebrations about being together, even if they were just together a minute ago. We would see it in TN, the girls would come into the barn for the night and there were rubber flaps in the doorway, after they came in, it was a party like they hadn’t seen each other in 2 days. It’s something that is really sweet to see in Rana, especially with how reserved she was trying to be with Ramba initially. She’s now allowing herself to express at least some of the joy she feels towards Ramba.
