The babies love playing outside together

Perry and Mortes inspecting a bit of cucumber together.

Great news from our baby group: over the last few months we have gradually integrated all our youngest chimps into one group of nine. They are now happily playing outside together, swinging from the ropes and enjoying each others company. All of them have been taken from their mothers at very young ages, so it lovely to see them make all the chimp-appropriate ‘play faces’ and grooming noises when they interact.

    These babies are absolutely gorgeous. Look like my beautiful Gaura after a few weeks in Tacugama under the care of Mama Posseh. Love new pictures of my Gaura. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
