    After our lunch and rest we went to the area where the babies are fed. For a few dollars donation the Mamuts (keepers/trainers) will let you feed a bottle of milk to one of the babies. No guesses for who wanted to do this. Unfortunately I did not get a photo of Sue actually feeding the elephant as it managed to down a litre of milk in 3 seconds!
