    Further to this report: Planckendael Animal Park swaps bonobos ahead of Brexit and from checking Zootierliste, it appears a female moved from Berlin Zoo to Twycross late in 2018 (LIKEMBA, I think). The swap referred to, again if my reading of Zootierliste is correct, involves LINA, LOUISOKO, LUCUMA and RUBANI moving to Twycross and DIATOU, BANYA, KEKE and MOKONZI moving to Planckendael. However, there is nothing on the websites of either zoo to confirm this.

    Almost - Diatou and Keke are still at Twycross, Kianga and Moko were the others that went to Belgium.

    Thank you. So, my reading of Zootierliste was only correct-ish! I'm still not convinced Likemba has moved from Berlin Zoo to Twycross - again, no announcement (and it would leave Berlin with a very small group of 1.3).

    Again I will have to correct you - I visited Twycross not long ago and Likemba is there. A move that may have slipped past you was male Limbuko returning to Berlin summer last year - he didn’t fit in at Cologne. So Berlin have 2.3 - males Santi and Limbuko, and females Opala, Monyama and Leki, Opala’s other daughter.

    NAYEMBIs father is MOBIKISI, the father of her first daughter NILA is KASAI.

    The father of her two days ago born baby could be HERI, NXOTA II, PANISCO, maybee SAMBO too.

    Nayembi is the daughter of Liboso and Mobikisi (both at Stuttgart currently). She is Mobikisi's only surviving offspring, and with him being a wildborn male this means she is very genetically important (her mother is also the daughter of two wildborn animals so in turn is equally important). She was born at Apenheul in 2006. Her first offspring is a daughter Nila, who was born whilst she was at Stuttgart. Nila's father is Kasai, the other breeding male at Stuttgart (and very successful at that, some might say too successful).
    As Bjoern says above, her father boils down to three likely candidates; brothers Heri and Nyota, or male Panisco. Panisco's younger brother Sambo is a possibility, but he is still quite young (seven this year) so he is unlikely.

    NAYEMBIs boy got the name ZIKOMO. HUENDA s baby is a male, HAIBAs baby probably too according to zoo friends. Both boys have been sired by KASAI. MOBIKISI had no access to HAIBA and HUENDA during to the time period of insemination.
