MAANI (50 years old; born 1958 ± 5years – died 2008)

Maani was the elder statesman of the community, a generally quiet chimp he maintained a good relationship with most of the females and despite never having attainted great height in the political structure he was clearly respected by the community as a whole. A gentle individual who still liked to play with the little ones he disappeared in summer 2008 after becoming very thin. Given he was a core member of the community and seen on a regular basis, his long absence along with his significant age means that he is now sadly presumed to have died. His legacy does live on though in his daughter Karo who seems to have inherited his steady nature.
