Imagine growing up without a mother. It’s a scary thought, isn’t it? Although I was fortunate enough to grow up with a loving mother that did everything she could to take care of me, I know others that weren’t so fortunate.
It’s not just humans, however, that have to worry about growing up with a mother. You’re about to meet a monkey in Zimbabwe named Horace who lost his birth mother while he was still very young. Although Horace was completely alone, hope wasn’t lost. Horace was fortunate enough to be picked up by the Twala Trust Animal Sanctuary.
Because the sanctuary was understaffed though, they decided to raise all their rescue animals together. The staff was worried that all the different animals at the sanctuary wouldn’t get along. They definitely didn’t expect what Horace would do…
This is Horace. He’s a cute monkey that was picked up by the Twala Animal Sanctuary in Zimbabwe after losing his birth mother.
