Baby Amari

Group 1

  • Gender: Female
  • Year of Birth: 21 October 2017


Amari was born 21 October 2017 to a female in our first Group, Bazia. We had no idea that Bazia was expecting. Bazia brought baby Amari on the tour the morning of her birth surprising all the staff. Bazia is extremely protective over the little Amari, and almost immediately started breastfeeding the youngster.

Useful Info

Amari is an extremely curious little chimp, constantly observing her environment and trying to get away from mom. All of her group members are showing interest in little Amari, but her mom will not allow anyone to get to rough with her. Some of the females have been observed disciplining the boys when they start getting too rough with Amari.
