Asali's personality is very different from the other chimps. She is stoic and rarely gets into altercations. One of our care staff's favorite things about Asali is her laugh. When she lets her guard down to play she has a very deep throaty laugh that is unmistakable. https://t.co/uJtLQ0oY83
Meet chimpanzee Asali! Shortly after she was born in 2005 her mother unexpectedly passed away, so she was brought to the Maryland Zoo to be hand-reared alongside fellow female baby Rozi. Asali has a unique look, distinguished by a very defined brow ridge and dark coloration. https://t.co/rrUX5jXObD

Is that Panamanian golden frog waving? Indeed, he is! Rarely captured on film, this “hand waving” is known as semaphore, used to attract mates or “wave off” other males in their territory. Since PGFs live near streams, this movement is useful when water drowns out vocal calls. https://t.co/NgEZipubm8

@YUQUI19 @Tia66069773 Every animal at our Zoo has their own story, but this is Kilgore's: He was found alone in Oregon when he was around 6-weeks-old. Because he was so young, he could not be reintroduced to his native habitat. We stepped in to give him a new home and professional care.
