The numbers are cray cray!
Peas and carrots, folks! That's the bond between alpha male Tumbill and baby Shangwe!

Michael Jackson's pet chimp, Bubbles, has been left high and dry by the Jackson family. The primate was left out of MJ's will and Bubbles is currently "in retirement" in Florida.
Prince, Paris and Blanket used to play with Bubbles all the time, but they have visited nor contributed any cash to Bubbles' $20,000 keep.
Sad…stuck in retirement with no one to talk to…
With a little bit of cooperation and teamwork, there's a new family in the Oklahoma City Zoo!

Enter the OKC Zoo, where surrogate mom Kito and alpha male Mwami are treating their new arrival with lots of love!
We love happy endings! Congrats on your new fam, Ruben!

A chimpanzee finds himself in a hairy situation. There's a delicious cracker on the ground and he wants it BAD!
But there's a glass door in the way and he doesn't English.
Have no fear though, the chimp has a few tricks up his sleeves.
He knows British Sign Language!
