Tiny Fila, little lips firmly latched onto her thumb, stole our hearts in December 2015. The tragic result of a mother baboon being shot, Fila was kept tied up for a number of weeks before being brought to the N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary. Our tiny girl is the more timid of the bouncy bunch of baboon babies, and it takes some time to win her trust. But it’s worth the wait! Our feisty Fila makes a dedicated companion and bed mate once she succumbs to the adoration bestowed on her.
