We're still playing the waiting game here at the Elephant Barn, and while most things have remained the same with the rest of the herd we have noticed Thong Dee behaving a little differently. Thong Dee is good friends with all the elephants, so she usually has a playmate close at hand. Of late however, she increasingly likes to have her own space and is becoming more cautious, checking out any unusual activities. Today she's enjoying some time to herself, hanging out in the lower paddock as she basks in the winter sun.
