A cute little English chimpanzee who was abandoned by his mom got his own seat and maybe the cutest passport ever for a flight to his new home.
Bili, the 3-month-old Bonobo chimp, had to be hand-reared after his mom abandoned him. He was taken recently by his new keepers to the Frankfurt Zoo in Germany to live with a mother chimp who has been trained to foster abandoned babies.
Bonobo chimps are endangered. They are found only in the Congo, and less than 10,000 are believed to survive in the wild.
No report what other passengers thought of the chimp on the plane, but I’m guessing he was less annoying than your average screaming child. Not to mention cuter.
