Elzet, it's been a month now. I would suggest that you supply the answer.

Apologies, apologies, this one slipped through under the radar. Rooies, Toko and Frederik, that is just the problem! :redface: :redface:

I couldn't recall for the life of me. Also, the history of my PC only runs till the beginning of June.


I actually lost the answer too. :redface: :redface: :redface:

But found it this morn'... There is a connection with Southern Africa somewhere. Must be, else I would not have asked the question or maybe I am getting older by the day. :twisted:


http://www.projectprimate.org/chimps/whoswho.shtml

For every chimp in captivity, it is estimated that ten have died in the process. :cry: :cry:


Lottie was also part of the group rescued by the Swiss woman. Since she arrived at the CCC in the summer of 1997, she has matured a lot. She's very stable and outgoing. She's very comfortable in the forested fence enclosure where she can stay for days at a time. In August 2000, she gave birth to a baby named Andrew. She's been a very good mother to him, being there for him when needed, but letting him be independent as well. The teenage males of the group, who are really protective of him, are carrying Andrew around all the time. They actually fight over whom will be the next lucky one to have him crawl on their backs or stomachs.

-----

What is the story of the Swiss woman? And the Southern African connection. :twisted: :| Seeing that I can't find that. :? :roll:

Could be the Crowned Eagle? - they often work in pairs, one flies over the tree tops so doing alerting the monkeys to danger, The monkeys respond by calling the danger to the rest of the troop and thus exposing their position to a second Crowned Eagle that tails slightly behind the first. The second eagle (unobserved by the vervets) then strikes at an off-guard individual vervet, killing it with super sharp (& long) talons. (Have collected two vervet sculls in the bush around my house sporting neat punctures corresponding with the profile of an eagles talons)

Is it possible for a baboon to care for a chicken?

The mom doesn't feed the chick but merely points out food, so yes, it may be possible?

The chicken actually fattens up the baboon....

Tue Sep 18, 2007

A lonely baboon in a private Lithuanian zoo has adopted a chicken he saved from certain death last month and the two have formed a fast friendship, the zoo's director said.

The chicken was intended as food for other animals in the zoo, but escaped and was sheltered by Mitis, a six-year-old Hamadryas Baboon, Edvardas Legeckas, who runs the zoo near the port city Klaipeda in western Lithuania, told Reuters.

Mitis has been fed chicken meat before, but this time he fell in love with his food, Mr Legeckas said.

"He plays with the chicken, cleans its feathers, sleeps with it, and takes care as if it was his own baby child," the zoo director said.

"But I am not sure how long this affair would last, because baboon may finally realise this is food."
