Cynthia

Park: Mahale
Gender: Female
Born: 1983
Still Alive: Alive

Having had a son, Cynthia is likely to become a higher ranking female than her counterparts in time. Caesar is a confident juvenile and is often seen travelling with the group, even if Cynthia is not there. She had a new baby in 2005, who died during the 2006 pneumonia outbreak. What was surprising is that unlike most of the females in the same situation, Cynthia did not carry her infant after his death, but abandoned his body on the very same day. Cynthia had a new baby in July 2008.

Caesar

Park: Mahale
Gender: Male
Born: 2000
Still Alive: Alive

Caeser is a juvenile who will be reaching his teens soon. He has quite a big body for his age. Often he can be found in the company of his mother, but lately he has been more separate from his mother as he is getting of age. He likes to act like a big male when there are other females, but no males, around. He is very good friends with Teddy and they can often be found together, swinging through the trees. The two have also been spending a lot of time with Carmen and Puffy and even trying to mate with them.
