Lucy clearly wanted to get up onto the rood with the orange ball. She didn't need another hand or foot to do it either!

Bonobo Lucy grooming her mom Lorell

Lucy, (whose birthday is December 1st) and will be six years old actually has her lips on her mom's nose. Mom (Lorell) looks relaxed to me, but I am not trying to interpret! Mom is lying down.

Four girls of various ages are on their platform grooming. Of course all the hands and feet are intriguing. Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Nov 2009
