Linda

Park: Mahale
Gender: Female
Born: 1982
Still Alive: Alive

A very relaxed female and a little bit of an outsider as she often likes to be alone with her family. You will frequently find her walking behind the other females. She is easily recognised as she has white hairs on the top of her hands instead of black hair. She has 2 daughters who are healthy but over the years she has lost up to 3 babies. This loss is thought to be the reason she spends more time with her family than in interacting with the group.

Liz

Park: Mahale
Gender: Female
Born: 2001
Still Alive: Alive

Liz often spends time with her mother, Linda, and younger sister, Lilum. They will usually be found trailing at the back of the group. She is a bit more social as she has been observed grooming with Teddy. She also plays with the other chimps and moves quickly with the group when walking, trying to urge her mother to join. When she sees her mother not joining the group she stays back to keep her company.

Lilum

    Park: Mahale
    Gender: Female
    Born: 2008
    Still Alive: Alive

    Just recently named, Lilum is the youngest of Linda's babies. She is a very cute baby. When Linda doesn’t feel like walking, Liz will often take her baby sister Lilum and walk away very fast - Linda doesn’t like this and she will run after Liz to catch up with her.
