- Boma is part of a group of chimpanzees consisting of her mother, Oopsie; her younger sister, Jessie; and adult males Bubbles and Ripley.
- Boma gets really excited about food enrichment to the point where she’s often the last one to get her treat because she’s too busy
running around hugging everybody else for reassurance out of excitement!
- She turns regular toys like plastic balls and toys into instruments, often tapping them against other things in her habitat. She is definitely the musician in her family group.
- Boma has a very distinctive pant-hoot that is impossible to describe.
ADOPT AN APE
It costs $22,000 a year to care for one of our apes. By symbolically adopting the ape of your choice for a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year, you are helping ensure the health, safety, and well-being of your orangutan or chimpanzee.
