Today from about 4:45 PM EST, on there was some interesting movement. Tajiri, in my personal opinion has stayed in the Giraffe Barn, in the right side pen with both Out Doors open, a lot today. Tajiri went into the left side and when Oliver came in, Tajiri moved quickly to the Out Door, stopped in the doorway, looked back at Oliver, then moved on outside. Oliver moved to his Out Door, stood looking outside, then went back to his feeding station area.
Tajiri entered the barn on theleft with Oliver still at the feeding station, but as soon as Oliver turned to move to the Out Door, Tajiri turned from the shared fencing and left! Thetime is approximately 4:55 PM EST, by then. Oliver goes back to thefeeding station then left the barn after a very short time. After he left, April came into the left side and Tajiri joined her there! Oliver came into the right side, looked at the feeding station and kept moving clock-wise then out and back in the left side! I think the interesting part is how as soon as Oliver turned from the Keeper's Gate, walking to the right-side Out Door, Tajirimoved with him, beat him outside and continued on while Oliver moved intothe left pen.
