Male chimp, Rambo, is photographed at the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Lake Victoria, Uganda.  Rambo was confiscated in an abnormal state, with a rash that would often result in accumulation of dead skin on the hands. Rambo is social and had no problem associating with his surrogate mother and any other visitor during his initial time in the quarantine at UWEC.<br />
On arrival at Ngamba Island he directly integrated so well with the likes of Nani, Nakuu, Nkuumwa and later the adult females. Although he is not afraid of the big- boys (Tumbo, Maisko and Sunday) he has great reservation and always keeps close to an adult female. 03/15/ Julia Cumes/IFAW
