Elsa has no distinctive physical features, but is a typically playful juvenile, who loves to help care for her little sister who is an infant. She’s also tight with the other members of the Habinyanja Juvenile Posse and of course prefers to play with them rather than hang out with the smaller babies, especially as her small sis can tend to be quite spoilt sometimes and bring the wrath of Mama Nyabukye upon poor little Elsa.
However these times are few and, on the whole, Elsa is a happy little gorilla who’s very glad to have you as a friend.
Now that you’re friends, when are you coming down to Bwindi for a visit? Don’t keep her waiting.
