Asian bull elephant Prince stayed inside his barn on the night of his arrival at PAWS' ARK 2000 sanctuary in San Andreas, CA. This allowed him to relax and adapt to his new surroundings. After walking about, eating and drinking and inspecting everything, Prince laid down on a mound of dirt and fell asleep.
The next morning Prince was ready for his new adventure, moving outside eagerly with PAWS' directors, Pat Derby and Ed Stewart, who led him out of his barn by tossing treats in front of him (bananas are his favorite). He moved about cautiously, ate grass, drank water, looked at the pool, but did not go in at first. He did come back to the pool later in the morning and went for his first swim.
