A team from the David Shelldrick Wildlife Trust went to rescue a wild animal in need of help. But they never thought they would also take in a pair of orphaned ostriches. Animals somehow have a way of getting lost or in trouble, especially when they’re babies. But the people at the Wildlife Trust come to rescue any wild animal that needs to be nursed back to health and rehabilitated.
When the team went to rescue an orphaned elephant, they weren’t’ expecting to see two identical ostrich chicks. They just hatched and were all alone near the airstrip in Laikipia.
They took them in, and this is how the story of Pea, Pod, and Jotto the elephant began…
20. Two ‘Peas in a Pod’
Looking at these two baby ostriches, it’s clear why the staff at the David Shelldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) from Nairobi, Kenya, said they were two ‘peas in a pod’. So, they named one of them Pea, and the other was Pod.
