Mama, 59 years old and the oldest chimpanzee and the matriarch of the famous chimpanzee colony of the Royal Burgers Zoo in Arnhem, the Netherlands, was gravely ill. Jan van Hooff (emeritus professor behavioural biology at Utrecht University and co-founder of the Burgers colony) who has known Mama since 1972, visited her in the week before she died of old age in april 2016. It took a while before she became aware of Jan's presence. Her reaction was extremely emotional and heart-breaking. Mama played an important social role in the colony. This has been described in "Chimpanzee Politics" by Frans de Waal, who studied the colony since 1974.

What a stupid man... She wants to hug him the moment she saw.... Doesn't have any emotion.... I'm feeling soooooo bad for the poor mama.... Gosh.... She rejected food because she was missing him... Soooooo upset mentally that or might face some kind of torture... That she chose to give up her life..... I have pets soo I can relate with her feelings.... Gosh... When people will really understand the pain and true love of animals......

There was an obvious "personality" there inside Mama, and what's the first part of the word "personality"? It's PERSON. These are persons. We see this all the time with dogs and cats and apes, and birds, etc. They're just wired differently from us. WOW! Very touching, thanks for posting that...

Other way around Dolph .. Animals love so much better then Humans. After all we did not get to be the top predator around here by being nice. Not that Humans can learn about love, kindness and making better ... just that the doing so makes then cry.

Monsters do not cry.

59 year old chimp, that's very old for a chimp?

For chimpanzees in captivity, the best information we have is this: For those who survive to their first birthday, median life expectancy is 31.7 years for males and 38.7 years for females. Life expectancy in wild chimpanzees tends to be the same or lower than in captive chimpanzees. One study found that average life expectancy for chimpanzees across five field study sites was only 15 years. But for those chimpanzees who survived to adulthood, which in this study was defined as 12 years old, their life expectancy was an additional 15 years. Of course, many wild chimpanzees live well beyond 27 years – the oldest wild chimpanzee was estimated to be about 63 years old when she died. http://www.chimpsanctuarynw.org/blog/2013/03/how-long-do-chimpanzees-live/

Is 59 years an advance age for a chimp? This is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Mama was so human like in her dying state. Look at those fingers moving. My god. RIP mama.
