Yet more additions to the Monkeyworld clan...

Ash - Ash is a female chimpanzee that was born at the park on 13/09/05. Her mother, Cathy had a bad reaction to the birth control pill so we let her get pregnant. Mum Cathy cared for her for a week but the baby was slowly dehydrating, probably because she was not getting enough milk. On the 7th day Cathy finally rejected the upset infant. Our Primate Care Staff are now caring for Rodders and Ash together and soon Sally, the chimp, will begin helping with the babies too!

Kai - Kai is a male orangutan that was born at Monkey World on 15/03/05. His mother, Hsiao-quai has done an excellent job looking after her first born. “Kai” means triumphant or victorious in Chinese. Kai is the second baby of the male Tuan born at the park.
