Moms Olympia and Jamani stay close by. Olympia is a little more non-chalant, while Jamani seems to be the peace keeper. It is usually Jamani's large strong hand which reaches in to stop the fighting when she's seen enough. She often cradles Apollo's head and tries to redirect his attention, without breaking the boys up. But other times she'll grab hold of Bomassa's arm and pick him up and take him away. She won't be able to do that forever. These boys are growing fast! When are you heading out to the North Carolina Zoo to see these delightful creatures for yourself?
