The ex-pet heads over to the D&D intro enclosure and then, Janet, gets an update and the soft babies finally, make their way out into the troop for real this time. The. Love affair between Trisha, and Jeffrey has finally, come to an end and it's, all Crystal's, fault well. Not. Really but you know. Hi. Where, one goes the other will follow what did you say his land anybody's, hand on my head he's like no, no. Thank you. Jeffrey. And crystal left Disneyland, and they headed over to the cocoa troop intro enclosure. Hello. You two. Hi. Package deal babies. Let's. Casanova, she could be your mom. Keira, you've gotten, plenty. What's. Going on little man the two babies were a little unsettled, by their new enclosure but a ton of females showed up at the fence to check them out and even Jolie and Peggy stopped by to say hi. You can't even see anything. The, two babies enjoyed, exploring their new digs until, a male vervet walked by outside of the fence and they both got a little worried did, you worry I got you back. It's. All right boys are not that bad, they're. Not that great either but, after he left everything went back to normal and crystal, and Jeffrey both seem pretty pleased to be in their new home. Tricia. Joined, Benjamin, Dylan, and Paquette over in the gizmo troop intro enclosure. Tricia. Had absolutely, no problem assimilating, into life with the three boys. And. She. Took very quickly, to the adoration of her foster mothers. We're, doing. Oh. Benjamin. I. Know. It's been a while since I've updated you on Jerry Joby and didi who were over in Goliath true but, they finally had their big day. Hello. Would be great, like, hey no yeah you know there are potential on papers and everyone in the ocean in Kiev she knows we're going out yeah. First. Out the door was Colleen and DD. Once. Outside Colleen. Stopped for a quick grooming, session with Mandy and then they headed off into the bush. But. Didi didn't stick with Colleen for very long she headed back over to the intro enclosure fence and paced back and forth by the door, she was probably wondering, why, the heck mrs. gold and all of her friends were still inside the intro enclosure when she was out here with all the big monkeys. Staff. Member Nellie then opened up the door mrs. gold scooped Jerry up onto her belly and Joby. And DeeDee followed them close behind as they ran out into the main enclosure. Once, out into the bush mrs. gold and the babies took a break Angelica. Came over and gave didi a big hug. They, then ran deeper into the bush and were joined by some of the juveniles. Everyone. Was very happy except, perhaps mrs., Gould's back. No. Matter how hard the other females tried to interact with the babies Jerry, Joby and didi stuck to mrs. gold like glue. Jerry. On the belly didi, on the back and Joby trailing close behind. About, a day after the release we received a new orphan baby vervet monkey she has been named Lugh I. Like. Her patchi's. Oh. Yeah. It does hello. Little patchy lady. That's. A Bernie said that's. Exciting, what's. Wrong with her eyes she got beaten up. Lou. Was found at a local garbage dump and she, was lying beside her dead mother while. A group of kids stood around throwing, stones at them. Luckily. Some, compassionate. People stepped, in, yelled. At the kids grabbed, the monkey and called, us up. In. Order. To clear up space for Lou in the baby cabin, we moved Kobe to the DND ensure enclosure after. The whole debacle last time with konso we decided to take a different approach. All. Right Baba let's, do it we let the moms out of the intro enclosure and sanctuary, manager Megan took Kobe into the airlock. Because. The. Bandits are all freaking. Out and even Godfrey, told her not to come near it's. Like good that. They're down there. But. Kobe did not want to let go of Megan.
She. Finally got him into the enclosure Tori distracted, him on the fence and then Megan snuck back out of the gate. Merlin. And konso came over to say hi but Kobe wanted nothing to do with that. Kobe. Would not stop pacing and searching for a way out. The. Boys did their best with Kobe but he managed to keep them at a distance. Nelly. Then let foster mom Shanae and Phyllis back into the intro enclosure. Shinae, and Phyllis had a brief moment of confusion where they couldn't decide who was going to groom whom. While. I was filming Shanae and Phyllis grooming each other con Joe took a turn trying to play with Kobe and he, was kind of successful and afterward, he had a lot to say about it. After. This Kobe calmed down a bit and let the other boys approach him but his demeanor was still a little bit more aggressive, than playful. We, told Jessie you wouldn't be a believe. Yeah. Totally. The slapping, a little aggressive. Despite. Kobe's aggressive playing with the boys he was not ready to meet the moms. It'll. Take some time for Kobe to calm down but, considering, the situation he's doing better than most at this point and I personally, would contribute, that to Merlin. I'm really, amazed at how easily these. Past 2x pets con Joe and Kobe, have just assimilated. Into this little family life and I think it's Merlin and Timothy I think those two guys have been through so much in their lives especially Merlin, that like they, just have this incredibly, calm calming. Demeanor and I think it does a lot for the babies. We. Had another big release as well the SOB babies Nora and Shemesh finally. Got to make it out into the troop with their foster moms Holly and Priya and this time it was legitimate. In. The morning a corn and some friends sat at the fence waiting, expectantly. When. It was time to go the babies and the moms left, the enclosure without, any hesitation. But. Right off the bat ACORN the alpha female was, following, the moms a little too close for comfort. It. Wasn't too long before a fight broke out and Nora, was actually stolen from Holly by acorn despite, the fact that acorn never wanted to come into the intro enclosure, it seems she actually did want a baby Priya. Managed to hang on to Shemesh and she hid in the bushes. But. Once a corn had Nora all to herself up in a tree she, completely, lost interest in the baby. Trying. Real hard. Poor, Nora was up in that tree shouting, for help from Holly, while a corn just sat there with her back turned. In. This. Case for a corn it seems to be more about proving a point and having, possession than, actually wanting to be a foster mom. So. It looks like acorns, holding her, but. Then, Holly. Is grooming her. Finally. Acorn allowed Holly to join them but she kept getting in between Holly, and Nora and clutching Nora to her belly. Eventually. Acorn got tired of this game and she moved on to Priya and Shemesh like. The first fight the second fight happened in the bushes and so there was nothing for me to film. But. After the second fight it was very clear that Priya's, friend's survivor, and Delilah had actually stepped in and defended, Priya and Shemesh from acorn both. Delilah and survivor suffered, some minor wounds. Why is she walking so, weird. For. The next half-hour so, you could see survivor and Delilah strutting, around guarding. Fria and Shemesh chattering. Recounting. Tales of the heroic battle. At. This point everything, went back to normal and the monkeys went about their business, Priya, Shemesh Nora and Holly all hid up in the trees grooming. Each other for comfort while, acorns sat on the ground doing, her favorite thing, munching. On food and finally. Over in the scroll intro enclosure little, Janet is happier, than she has ever been with her foster mom Poland. And.
