"Lex and Lois came to the Zoo in December with the hope that they would breed," stated Mike McClure, general curator for The Maryland Zoo. "It became apparent a few weeks ago that breeding had been successful, and we have been preparing the barn for this new arrival. Sunday morning keepers found the kid newly born and resting with her mother."

Lana weighs 3 pounds, and began to walk approximately one hour after birth.  "A first time mother, Lois is properly caring for her offspring and we have seen the kid actively nursing," continued McClure.

"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."
