24 Y.O. Chimp Gives Birth To Twins At Zoo

insert * joke regarding twins here

<snip>

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli zookeepers suspected some monkey business only after Maya, a 24-year-old chimpanzee, suddenly gave birth to twins despite an apparent lack of virile mates.



The happy event at Jerusalem's Biblical Zoo caught everyone by surprise: nobody had noticed Maya was pregnant and Og and Gremlin, the only adult males among 11 chimps at the facility, were sterilized years ago, a zoo official said Tuesday.


A search for the father found that a precocious seven-year-old chimp called Nicky had reached puberty early and was probably having the run of the primates' house.
