Lola ya Lola

October 11, 2015

We recently gave a little news about Semendwa, well here is Lola ya Lola, Semendwa’s third baby. This young female is just 1 and a half years old but is really quite independent for her age. She spends a lot of time playing with older males and females a few meters away from her mother!
One day she will have to leave her group to go and find her place in a new unrelated group. In bonobos, females only stay in their birth group until puberty. Once they present a sexual swelling, they migrate from their group to join a new one, in which they can reproduce with any male and avoid any inbreeding.
