New infant at Fongoli!

Big news at Fongoli is that female Farafa had a new baby! She is also mother of Fanta, David and Frito (deceased). New baby seems to be doing well - very hardy in his clinging ability - and the rest of the chimp community is very interested in him (we think it's a boy but need to get a better view to be sure!).

In other news, we recently had a paper published in the American Journal of Primatology. First author is Michaela Howells, a 2005 graduate of Iowa State University in Anthroplogy. The paper stems from her Master's research on parasites at Fongoli and includes data on baboons as well as the Fongoli chimps. Here is a link to the journal:
