Baby Chimp Garissa Born in Basel




A baby chimp named Garissa was born in Basel on April 15. Her mother Benga, 30, is the second chimp to give birth at Zoo Basel in the past year: Xindra, 38, had a son Fahamu who is now 8 months old. (Very) rough translation suggests some Springer-esque mystery around Garissa's birth - no one was certain Benga was pregnant after multiple tests, and her father could either be Wakili, 10, or Eros, 47.
