Characteristics :
Kaew Petch is a very curious elephant who follows volunteers and staff in search of food and treats. She enjoys her showers and loved to be scrubbed by volunteers as her skin condition cause her to be extremely itchy. After few months getting used to be unchained and free, she is now more independant and less afraid of humans. She can be unpredictable and sometimes a bit agressive.
