Muhammad Abdel Aziz ،Muhammed Abdel Aziz in the middle was busy rubbing the elephants with a white liquid, I approached him and inquired about what he was doing, to my question he replied: “I have to rub their bodies with glycerin to moisturize their skin and keep them warm” Muhammad has been working at the zoo for 25 years, about his work he noted: “this is a lifetime companionship, these animals are my life, I think I should not say they are more dear to me than my children, maybe they are just as precious to my heart.” “Na’eema, come here girl!” He called the only female elephant in the zoo, which is 27 years old, with a rm commanding tone. His tone so ens as she approached him.
