BABY BONOBO CHIMPANZEE ~ JACKSONVILLE ZOO & GARDENS
"Who's our favorite little mud muffin sitting in the stream?
Lukuru, son of bonobo Jo-T, was born Oct. 1, 2014. Bonobo sons maintain a special relationship with their mothers, even after they become adults. In bonobo societies, females are dominant. So sons need the help of their mothers to fit in and be successful. Sons stay in their natal group their entire lives. Females migrate out and join other groups."
