    Digit lives with her human parents, the zoo owners (see description of the chart linked below), but I could not find anything about Gincko - he was sent back to live in the zoo again, but I don't know if he's solitary now. Gincko was raised in the Stuttgart nursery and after some time in La Boissiere returned to St Martin.

    I believe he moved back to St martin because a male at the previous zoo attacked him.
