The elephants have a 6 acre enclosure which includes a mud wallow, scratching posts, water hole and a tyre attached to a tree.

At 7am the elephants are fed and up until 10am they are washed and scrubbed. They are then released into the outside enclosure until 1:45pm when the females are taken to a demonstration. After the demonstration the females are taken for a walk round the park and set free onto Dunstable downs.

This provides enrichment for them.

They are then returened for training at 3pm. The male and females are then taken in for the night and fed at 5pm.

Anna has a problem with her front left leg which means she swings it when she walks.
