Today I saw something I have never seen before. Mixa kept slapping his testicles on Tembo’s face, and Tembo kept biting them. I have never seen a bonobo laugh as hard as Mixa with Tembo’s teeth sunk into his balls.
I asked Claudine how she does it. In a week I’ve seen her lose a new born baby, her oldest bonobo, and an orphan who came in with a broken heart, literally. I’m just passing through and I can hardly stand it. Claudine just looked at Mixa pulling Fizzy off a log and said,
‘They seem happy don’t they?’
And that was her answer.
