Luk Chai had another nap in the paddock this morning. He fell asleep in the middle of sampling a pineapple leaf. Mum and the aunts love pineapple tops and he’s been having a nibble too. Mid-chew he shut his eyes for a nap and the pineapple leaf hung out of his mouth whilst he rested.
Aunty Pakboon stood close by as he dozed. The big elephants take it in turns to keep an eye on him and touch him gently with their trunks as he sleeps. Often when he wakes up he’s covered with wet trunk kisses all over his body.
