Tarra's Stick Play in the Pond

Elecam Encounter: March 10 and 18, 2014 -
Tarra, The Sanctuary's founding elephant, was recorded using a stick to seemingly stir up the water and mud at the Asia pond and then waiving the stick over the top of the water...possibly to watch the shadow play on water's surface. Tarra has been observed several times using a stick to scratch in the dirt or mud for no discernible purpose, other than just for the heck for it. While we see the other Girls using sticks to scratch those hard to reach places or testing out their throwing skills (Flora), Tarra is the only one we've seen using a stick to stir the water. At 40 years old, Tarra is constantly teaching us about how her mind (and those of her Sanctuary Sisters) works.
