lukuru update

Lukuru is looking better today. You can see she’s put some fat on her tummy, and her arms are filling out. She’s drinking milk like a little demon so no worries there, and her favourite food is sugar cane.

Crispin the vet is still not clearing her complete – she’s so young – only 20 months – one of the youngest bonobos we’ve ever gotten at the sanctuary. She’s hardly ever off Mama Henriette, but she definitely holds her own. If one of the other nursery bonobos tries to steal her food, she sinks her little teeth into their hands.
