Orphan Mandela Update in Riley Troop

Updated: Apr 10, 2020

Orphan Mandela was bonded to Betty to join Riley Troop. Once Betty was let into the semi-wild, Bella and Tessa quickly showed interest; they certainly wanted Mandela to be their baby. Today, Mandela has been fully accepted and actually spends most of his time with adult males Phil and Gus; on their bellies and ensuring they come to his defence whenever he lets out a little squeal.
