Absolutely. Eleanor has no "tamer" like some of the other menagerie battles (1/3 EXP) and is only 1 pet instead of 3 (1/2.5 EXP). Factor in you probably didn't use the same level "carry pet" in both battles, and you can definitely have 1/10 the experience and even less than that.
Check out my carry pet experience reference for details on how it is calculated (I'm still collecting data on WoD battles so those aren't listed yet, but the equation for calculating EXP is there and that is what dictates this).
NOTE: Menagerie battles that are considered to have a tamer include Squirt and any battle where you click on the post to start the battle. Battles where you click on the pet directly do not have a tamer bonus).
EDIT: Example assuming you just have the safari hat on:
Level 10 carry against a post started menagerie battle => 3,135 EXP
Level 24 carry against Eleanor => 218 EXP
That's less than 1/14 EXP.
