Sleepless in…Zambia

Here is our animal welfare hero of the month – Cosmas, getting a taste of fatherhood with his latest rescue Chikondi, a tiny baby primate.

After a few sleepless nights, Cosmas decided the only way for both of them to get any sleep, was to have Chikondi sleep next to him. Serious dedication! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜†

Cosmas, project manager of Zambia Primate Project, rescues and rehabilitates many primates in Zambia and successfully releases them back in to the wild. However, when they are this tiny, they need constant care and attention so he regularly hands them ย over to Anna & Steve Tolan of Chipembele. Chikondi is now in the loving care of Anna and Steve and enjoying the comfort of other rescued baby primates, Shadi and Pumpkin. ย How cute are these photoโ€™s?

  1. Oh bless Cosmos! So charming for us to see, I bet he
    still don’t end up with much sleep. Such a welcome contrast to some of the other things in your blogs Dave. Just looking again at those metal jackets for the ‘bile bears’. Like something out of a horror film. Nightmarish.

    1. Hi Tricia, sorry for late reply. Yes Cosmas didn’t get much sleep but this baby has now been introduced into a foster vervet family and is doing well. Those bear bile jackets are so so HORRIFIC that the day I first saw one in the flesh I was Gob-Smacked and couldn’t help but try get into the head of the person who actually thought it up and the designed it and then had it manufactured……….what a Cruel SOB……….these are the people I would love to meet in a dark alley ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก.
      Thanks you for showing an interest in my blog ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘
