RUKUNDO ADULT FEMALE
Meaning of name: Her name means ‘Friendly or Lover’
Age: No exact date and year of birth but she is clearly the youngest of the adult females. This has been established because she was a mere sub-adult when the trackers first and encountered her during habituation and they have had the privilege of watching her blossom to womanhood.
Who’s yo daddy? Mukurusi
Who’s yo mama? Mother unknown
With a name like that and a personality to match it, it is clear that this gorilla is a prime catch by the way of friendship. Of all the adult females in the group she’s the one who stands out as being most friendly to man and beast alike.
From way back during habituation, she has remained welcoming and approachable. Family feuds haven’t changed her, and neither has motherhood. She’s currently undertaking the hard task of weaning her child and it’s just as difficult for gorilla mums as it is for human mums. Got tips for her on this front?
