The new girl in town.

Did you know that Chimpanzee's are territorial? A male Chimpanzee will never leave his home territory which is around 15 square miles. Interestingly once a female reaches sexual maturity at the age of 13 she will usually cross into a neighboring community’s territory and be accepted. In this way the gene pool is kept healthy and the female avoids her brothers making sexual advances. If a guy walks into the next door neighbors territory he will be killed as soon as he is spotted.

Juju has just moved from another community and its surprising how quickly she has become used to us. It’s as if the other members of the M community have told her not to worry about those tall apes that walk on 2 legs.
