Sandoa's new mum

Sandoa has become very attached to Esperance, who has not had a bonobo baby since her little Vanga 3 years ago. Vanga is now the nursery terror, replacing Boyoma who went to group 3. I'm sure he's not happy about the new arrival, but Lomela adores Sandoa. In typical Lomela fashion, she is just so gentle and sweet, despite being twice as big as any of the other bonobos in the nursery, she's no bully. She touches Sandoa softly every now and then, as if to let her know that she might be sad now, but everything will be alright.
