    Speaking of Mixi, her father Kirembo (son of Kombote and Masikini) died unannounced in Vallée des Singes last winter. So the population at VdS is actually 25 (7 offshow, 18 onshow)

    I do not, no. Only that it was in winter and that they suspect it was dilatative cardiomyopathy, just like his older brothers Simon and Lusambo, and his dad Masikini.
