Taking Refuge in Mama's Arms

Cuddling with Mama

The comfort of mother
At about three months of age, the boys are still grabbing onto their moms most of the time. I was not able to visit for a couple of weeks, and when I finally got back, I noticed little change in Bomassa, but Apollo had grown quite a bit and his mom Olympia was more willing to show him. In the past, she has almost always kept her back to the viewing window. Just as if she wanted to help him keep his privacy.

But this time I was able to get quite a few good shots of the youngest member of the troop at the Forest Glade.  Here we see Apollo with his two little arms wrapped around Olympia's hefty arm. Can you see his little fist grabbing onto the fur on the upper right? Total sweetheart!
