Born August 1979
Kriba was named after Kris Baris, a former ape keeper at Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands. Kriba lacks the self-assuredness of her mother Mouila, sometimes becoming restless for only minor reasons. As the mother of Kimya, she is always careful and concerned for the youngster’s well-being. No doubt she has learned these skills from her mother. Kriba will often assume the role of Kibabu’s second in charge. In times of potential threat to the group Kriba, like Kibabu, will patrol the exhibit and monitor closely what is going on in the outside world.
