Day 4 started very early, with the riding of elephants from the jungle back to the hotel. The overall scene was quite surreal, almost like something out of Jurassic Park. This was followed by a hearty breakfast. After breakfast, the mahouts showed how they make crafts out of bamboo, and everyone was given a few of these to take home. Again we had a chance to feed and then bathe the elephants, while also getting to know their mahout better. After lunch, the group learned how to calculate the size of each elephant in order to determine how much food they should be eating. We learned that an average fully-grown elephant consumes about 200 kgs of food per day. There was also some instructions on how to monitor elephant health, as well as a demonstration of how to use a tranquilliser blow gun (in case of emergency). After a break and dinner, we closed the evening with some karaoke.
