Today we are going to return to a subject we have discussed here in the past, spawned by a question from Kevin. Even though the question is the same as one answered before, perhaps, that answer might have changed.
Keeva is a baby chimpanzee, an adorable, sweet little girl born March 12 to a female chimp at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Unfortunately, her mom, 26-year-old Carole, seemed ill-prepared for the responsibilities of motherhood. She wasn't hostile toward Keeva, wasn't trying to hurt her. Trouble was, she wasn't trying to do much of anything with her baby - she wasn't nursing her, wasn't bonding with her.
