Meet Baby Merkur!

We are excited to welcome another healthy infant to the Tuanan population named Merkur. Merkur is Milo’s first offspring. Mindy gave birth to Milo right when we started conducting research at Tuanan in 2003 and now she is a mother. It is wonderful to have a full cycle and see this matriline grow. Mindy is a grandmother with an infant of her own (Moby). This also means that Milo was pregnant during the fires and successfully had a baby – good news!
