Chimpanzee – Born
Have you a brother or sister? Do you have a twin? A twin is a baby born at the same time as you from your mother. Twins stay very close all their life. Here are some stunning Monkey twins just born.
“It is fairly unique to have chimp twins, but Elaine is an experienced mother and is doing extremely well,” said Lynn Tupa, Zoo Manager, “The twins are getting stronger and more active every day. Elaine is teaching them to hang on by walking around and letting them hang on to her without being held.”The ABQ Biopark Zoo was asked to breed their chimps as part of the Species Survival Plan. This plan helps zoos around the country coordinate breeding programs for threatened and endangered species and helps to maintain good genetic diversity.More great photos, below the fold!
