What Are The Jabulani Elephants Up To?
It’s Foraging Time! Up Close with Young Elephants Zindoga, Mambo, and Pisa
Spend some time out in the bush with young elephants Zindoga, Mambo, and Pisa. All three youngsters were born to the Jabulani elephant herd. Zindoga, the oldest of the three, is 15 years old, and Mambo and Pisa are both 13 years old. Zindoga is slightly bigger than Mambo, and both bulls are significantly bigger than Pisa. Pisa may be smaller than them, but she is certainly not scared of them. Like her older sister, Limpopo, Pisa enjoys playing and sparring with the young bulls. She’s not even intimidated when Zindoga kicks his leg out to block her from approaching his foraging area and getting her trunk on any fruits. She simply steps over his foot, and Zindoga eventually makes space for her. There’s always something interesting happening out in the bush, you just have to look closely.
