DOB: 17 April 2019 Mother: Pepper Father : Likely to be Leo
Pete is the first baby born to Löwina’s troop this year. He is also the first baby born to new mum Pepper too. Pepper has quite a fiery personality and she is obsessed with safely for her son. So far she has remained suspicious of everyone around her, even her own members from the same troop if they dare approach her baby son. She would lash out at anyone trying to get too close to him !
Pete is a lively little boy on the rare occasions when mum cut him some slack. I am pretty sure he is more capable than what his mum makes him appear to be…
Mother: Löwina DOB: around 21/05/2018 Father: Leo
Fözzi was so named as she’s got really fuzzy baby fur when she was born especially on her ears 🙂
Fözzi’s debut 🙂
Sister to Flöffi born the year previously and the newest heir to the throne she is again expected to become independent as soon as possible by her matriarch mum Löwina. We again see her getting weaned early and she is among the first few of this year’s babies to be acting so independently at such young age. She doesn’t seem to get much piggybacking from mum at all 🙂
Sorry Fözzi but there’s a lot to be expected from you….
Her relationship with Flöffi again resembles that between Noe and Nona and it is always a joy to watch them interact with each other 🙂
Noe and Nona, Fözzi and Flöffi 🙂
Her best friend is Demi, born 3 weeks after her. These two babies are adorable when they huddle and lip-smacking at each other as though they are gossiping how horrible life is when milk is being cut back by their mums !
Mother: Donna DOB: around 14/06/2018 Father: unknown
Unlike her sister Danni’s almost pitch-black coat, Demi has a light auburn one but apart from the colours the two look alike as they both have such a cute and beautiful face with their almost trademark-like beautiful big round eyes, a trait they both inherit from their mum Donna 🙂
Demi’s debut 🙂
Demi is just so cute 🙂
Again Demi is also camera-shy and it is rare to catch her 🙁
Poor Löwina has been around for a long time and before I began 3 years ago to follow and video the monkeys regularly I see on my weekly hike I had already known about the existence of this poorly abused matriarch for a while. However I didn’t begin to include this troop in my list to follow until later in 2017 hence the list goes only as far back as 2017….
Mother: Nana DOB: around 06/05/2017 Father: unknown
Noe was the very first baby born in 2017 and because he was so cute ( he still is ) I decided to follow his progress when I can and one thing led to another and so in the end I ended up following all their babies born that year in 2017 LOL ! Fortunately Löwina’s troop is small and is not very prolific otherwise I would have regretted that decision to put them on my radar screen !
Noe’s debut 🙂
What makes Noe a joy to watch, apart from the loving interactions he has with his mum is his love-hate relationship he has with his sister Nona ( previously known as Olivia ), born probably back in 2015. The two love to tease each other and their shenanigans always put a grin on my face 🙂
We’ve met Nona before as a baby….
Noe and Nona are friends and enemies at the same time 🙂
Flöffina aka Flöffi♀
Mother: Löwina DOB: around 10/07/2017 Father: Leo, the alpha male
Flöffina is so named because of her fluffy tail which resembles a squirrel’s 🙂 This fluffy tail is a trait she likely inherits from her father Leo who has one too !
Despite being an heir to the throne Flöffi was never pampered by her matriarch mum and was never allowed to have access to milk round the clock. In fact she was weaned quite early on and was aunted ( babysat ) most of the time. It seems as though Löwina does expect her daughters to be independent asap so as to prepare them to lead the troop in case she isn’t around anymore ! Perhaps her injury from animal abuse had had a part to play with her seemingly harsh attitude towards her babies….
while older Noe could still nurse at will Flöffi was getting a taste of aunting….
Mother: Donna DOB: around 14/07/2017 Father: unknown
Danni was one of the cutest babies born in 2017 ! She caught my eye immediately as she looked so much like baby Dopey minus the clumsiness though 🙂 Being the daughter of a low-ranking female she never likes to be noticed and shuns the limelight all the time 🙁 But I respect that and I always try to zoom in so as not to upset her at all.
