Animals: Chimpanzees: When you're a baby chimp, you have to hang on like grim death

Animals: Chimpanzees: When you're a baby chimp, you have to hang on like grim death to your mum or you'll lose her- and Chimp "Meg" is not the best of mothers, for all "Meg's" babies up to now have been brought up by humans - she just ignored them. But with her new friend Chimp Jane (the both had babies at the same time) and Jane's good influence as a mum, Meg has been shown the way and she is keeping her baby now. Meg has a few unmotherly habits like carrying her baby Sue upside down and dropping her, but both Sue and Jane's baby Kate are both a credit to their mums. Little Kate is the baby that hangs on to Jane's back. Meg carries her baby slung underneath or in her arms, and, in on picture, upside down (all you can see are little Sue's feet where her head should be). Chester Zoo, where they live, have had great success with chimpanzees - the two new babies make twenty, which is a success story. But most of the credit goes to the Chimpanzees, even to careless mums like Meg. April 1971
