A grooming session with old friends.

29 September 2011

This great shot was taken yesterday by Brian Vogelsan, it shows Fanana (33 years old) being groomed by Alofu (28) who is in the center and is being groomed by Orion (20). It’s great to see the reunion of old friends after Alofu’s 5 week absence. Yesterday our trackers watched Alofu challenge Pimu the alpha male, they tell me that Pimu is looking worried. I would be too knowing how much the Mahale chimps respect Alofu.
