Here are the pictures of the latest chimps who have been handed over to J.A.C.K. on the same day:

Tika (a young male of about 3 years old)

Bapu (baby female) and Pundu (baby male)

Tika is now in the quarantine of our Refuge. He is doing fine, vocalises a lot with the other chimps of the Refuge and has a real good heart.

We had to start treatments at once as this young male was full of parasites (mainly tape worms!). Below with Mama Maguy

Bapu & Pundu are at my place as they both were in a very bad condition. We believe that they would have died in the coming week as both were so weak, traumatised, dehydrated and full of parasites too!

Today Bapu & Pundu are settling in and it will surely take some time. They both weigh less than 4 kg and you only hug bones once you want to cuddle them.

Since their arrival, both have put on weight (150 grams each) and I still hope they will continue progressing in that way.

 Together with Papa Augustin, I keep an eye on them 24 hours a day!

Their face and behaviour is already completely different than from the day they arrived and it is obvious both Pundu and Bapu feel confident again...
