The orphaned Albino baby elephant, Khanyisa, lives at the elephant sanctuary “HERD” in South Africa. Adine Roode had been looking after these majestic creatures.
Khanyisa was a baby albino elephant living there. She kept her mouth open until her lovely Adine put the milk bottle in her mouth. She adored milk. The baby elephant drank around 2 bottles of milk every 4 hours. They had to make sure that Khanyisa did not fill up too much on fruits and vegetables like marulas and sweet potatoes. She needed to have an appetite for her milk, which was essential.
The elephant weighed 124 kgs when she was brought to the sanctuary and now due to Adine and the special care she weighs 520 kgs. Caring for animals brings pleasure to Adine and she does her work with great love.
