Orphan Mbebo  at the JGI  Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in Congo

Mbebo

Mbebo is happiest when he’s near his caregivers and his best friend, Mambou. Although Mbebo is a big chimp, he’s a baby at heart and is known for being quite mischievous! He steals food when no one is looking, and comically somersaults away with the prized fruit in his mouth. But after a full day of playful antics, Mbebo is ready for a cuddle, dinner and his cozy bed.
