Baby Chimpamzee Born

Ramona age 21, and KC, age 12, are the proud parents of a chimpanzee born at the Dallas Zoo at 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 19. This was the first birth for Ramona and KC. Residents of the Kimberly-Clark Chimpanzee Forest will be off exhibit for a short period of time so zookeepers can keep the chimpanzees together while they become accustomed to the new family member.

“There is a lot of excitement,” said John Fried, mammal supervisor for the Wilds of Africa. “The other chimpanzees have been checking out the baby, and the staff has been monitoring Ramona around-the-clock. The baby is nursing and Ramona is doing well as a first-time mom.”
