 Cadmus
Cadmus, at 16, was a young adult starting to rise through the heirarchy of the group. He was described by our guides as a feisty male! Unfortunately, in an indication of the harsh brutality of the chimpanzee troupe, in July 2010 Cadmus was attacked by the then alpha male Pimu, presumably as he was seen as a threat to his authority. Cadmus was severely injured, and was not seen again at Mahale - either he went into exile or, more likely, died from his injuries.
