 Cynthia's Baby
Babies within the Mahale troupe tend not to be named by the scientists until they are a year or two old, because of the high mortality rate. Cynthia, in the background grooming her baby, is 26 years old. This is her third baby, though the second one died in a pneumonia outbreak in 2006
