Little Mommy (Little Mother) - 73-year-old female chimp in the family in a safari park in Lyon County Loksahatchi, Florida - considered the oldest chimpanzees living in captivity. Recently, the old woman had surgery to remove a wobbly tooth, and "repaired" minor injury, possibly caused by young males of the group. The females of her family's wounds carefully stopped up with straw, but the vet managed to get it all cleaned.
