Mobangi

Mobangui (Copyright by Angelique Todd)Mobangui (born in July 2006) at less than three years and is the second youngest member of the group. He is named after a forest vine and still spends much of his time being carried by his mother, Bombe. He has thicker, fluffier hair than the infant Bokata, and a round face with a pig-like nose. Recently, he has begun to attain some independence, but is still an unsteady walker and the ever-watchful Bombe is always there to snatch him up on to her back if danger approaches or play gets too boisterous. He has a growing interest in the observers which is bringing more opportunities to get to know him. Mobangui will grow up under the protection of the dominant female in the group, which will no doubt give him a headstart in life.
