We continue to the Asian elephant compound. Like with the Indian rhinos, a baby is present.
The elephants feed on branches and leaves. Often, they throw autumn leaves on their backs; as ‘medicine’ against insect parasites.
Sometimes, an elephant passes on food to a fellow herd member.
These big animals have to eat much.
We continue to the white bridge, where we meet this black-headed gull in winter plumage.
On one side of the bridge are Sumatran tigers, like years ago. On the other side used to be polar bears and the Rotterdam natural history museum. But the polar bears have moved to a spacier compound, and the museum has moved to elsewhere in Rotterdam.
Stay tuned, as there will be more blog posts on 30 October in Rotterdam!
