Chimp Haven Celebrates Valentine’s Day with a Birthday

A year ago on Valentine’s Day, Chimp Haven unexpectedly welcomed the birth of Valentina Rose. This exciting event was particularly surprising because Conan, Valentina’s father, was vasectomized.  Today, this vibrant baby chimpanzee is highly energetic and curious.

Recently, while walking through the sanctuary, I observed Valentina Rose enjoying a sweet moment with Magnum, one of Valentina’s group mates. Take a look at their playful interaction.
