Keeva, a 4-week-old female chimp, came to the Tampa zoo by plane after her mother gave birth to her at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Keeva had a healthy birth, zoo officials said, but Mike McClure, general curator at The Maryland Zoo, said her birth mother wasn't handling parenthood well. Staffers in Baltimore separated the baby chimp and nurtured her in the Zoo's Chimpanzee Forest while they found a surrogate mother in Tampa.Abby, 32, is one of Tampa's four adult chimpanzees and will be introduced to Keeva in a couple months, officials said.

"The birth seemed to be without complication and the baby appeared to be healthy," stated Mike McClure, general curator at The Maryland Zoo. "However, it soon became apparent that Carole was not adapting to motherhood appropriately and we made the difficult decision to remove and hand-rear the baby while searching for a suitable home with a nurturing surrogate."
For several weeks, Maryland Zoo staff cared for Keeva 24/7 in a behind-the-scenes area in the Zoo's Chimpanzee Forest, where she remained in close proximity to the chimp troop. "Even as a tiny infant, it was important to familiarize Keeva with the sights, sounds and even scent of the troop," continued McClure.
During this same timeframe, the Maryland Zoo's animal care team worked with the Chimpanzee Species Survival Plan (SSP) of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to identify an adult female chimpanzee who might fill the role of surrogate mother. It was determined that Keeva would be moved to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo where she could be matched with a proven surrogate named "Abby."

"Pearl did not show interest in her two prior calves, so we were watching her interactions with this calf very closely," stated Mike McClure, general curator of the Zoo.
Maryland Zoo announces birth of hamerkop chicks

"It's hard to miss the hamerkops building a nest this size," said Mike McClure, general curator at the Zoo. "Staff had been checking inside periodically to see if there were chicks, and we were happy to find two healthy chicks on August 18. They are now fledging and are preparing to leave the nest, so the public should be able to see them in the Aviary very soon. The young birds will spend a lot of their top on top of the nest as they learn how to fly.
Zoo visitors can see the hamerkops' massive nest in the African Aviary at the African Watering Hole exhibit, and should be able to see the chicks learning to fly. "They should begin flying about 50 days after they are born, which would be approximately the first week of October," continued McClure.

Samson is a name meaning 'of the sun.' In the Bible, Samson is a Herculean figure,who uses tremendous strength to combat his enemies and perform heroic feats unachievable byordinary men."Samson is really a great name for an elephant," stated Mike McClure, general curator andelephant manager at the Zoo. "Right now, he is more like a Sammy, but as he matures he will certainlygrow into his new name." Born on March 19, 2008, weighing 285 pounds, Samson is a healthy activecalf who is gaining 2 1/2 pounds a day. "At this rate, he is going to be a big boy by the time he grows up,"continued McClure.
