Lunch on the Go
Photograph by Michael Nichols

Goualougo chimps crowd the branches of a Dialium tree, hungry for its fruit. Having photographed and sketched these animals, researcher Dave Morgan is able to identify them by name: Baby Leakey is in the middle, joined by his mother, Theresa, right; Theresa's friend Fiona, left; and Lewis, a young male.
