At PAL, she lives with Kumi and Tanisha, who arrived in April 2015 then Mahengo, who arrived in February 2021. Today, Ela finds herself in the African plain with other herbivores: white rhinos, Grevy's zebras, Cape moose and nyalas.
At PAL, she eats fresh branches of different tree species depending on the season (birch, hornbeam, hazelnut, willow ...), alfalfa fodder, pellets for leaf-eating animals (which eat leaves) and vegetables ( celery, endives, leeks and onions). She benefits from a vitamin E supplement to ensure her a diet without deficiency. The caretakers feed them morning and evening, at a fixed time, and they have a snack during the day.
Of a fearful nature, she manages to overcome her fear thanks to her curiosity to discover new spaces and new developments. His caretakers have in store for him some surprises with occasional and original enrichments!
Her build and potency can be dangerous when she's afraid. So when the healers are in direct contact with Ela, they use a large pole to ensure a safe distance for them and for her.
Julien had installed a bone in the enclosure of the giraffes, since they eat it in nature to meet their calcium and phosphorus needs.
