Luna enjoying life in the nursery group!

Luna arrived at J.A.C.K. in July 2011 and was less than 1 year old…

Today, one year later, she is enjoying life in the baby group and although her introduction took some time, we can now say it is a great success! The last time I was with her in the nursery group, she left my arms and this meant that she was ready to go with the others…

Of course, all the youngsters were extremely surprised to see Luna walking around the place…

new friends, new group, new life, new start…

And when Tika, the dominant, arrived, she knew he would be the one that would from now on take care of her and she grabbed his back as if to say ‘OK, let’s go…I am a chimp too, but a very young one and I need you!”

Since that particular day of August, Tika has been over-protecting the little one and we are pleased and proud baby Luna is now among others of her own kind…
