A trip to Imire Rhino and Wildlife Conservation park » matriarch

The elephant that thinks she is a buffalo. When Nzou was acquired there were no other elephants. Now she won’t tolerate the alpha buffalo who is kept separate from the herd for his own safety. Attempts to introduce her to the other elephants have not been successful though Judy is optimistic that in time she’ll adapt. Very protective of her handlers she once actually chased off an attack on one of them by one of the buffalo.
