Kalunde the King maker

13 March 2011

The Mahale Chimpanzee community has more than one character in its midst. One Chimpanzee that every one loves to watch is the old timer, Kalunde, now 50 years old.

Famous for being the King maker, Kalunde is often the brains behind coalitions where he supports a younger Chimp in his quest to become the Alpha male.

In this photo which was also taken by Nick Manzoli, you can almost see his mind ticking away, plotting the next take over.

Watch out Pimu.
