- 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 too busy running around hugging everybody else for reassurance out of excitement!
- She turns regular toys like plastic balls into instruments, often tapping them against other items 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.
