More from our favorite girl...

Lomela is SO big now - she's almost as big as the other females! Not suprisingly, she's such a positive influence in the forest. What we hoped would happen has happened - the sweetest girl in the nursery is now the sweetest girl in the jungle. She is always calm towards everyone, spends a lot of time grooming everyone, keeps the group together and is quick to hug away any disputes.

I've just done a massive plane ride and I feel like a wrinkled shirt. I would love a Lomela hug.

Here she is grooming Etumbe on bonobo beach with Max and his beautiful hair watching them...
