Baby chimpanzee raised by zookeepers after mother becomes ill
Baby chimpanzee Jason sits on his sleeping box at the Attica Zoological Park in Spata, east of Athens, Friday, Nov. 13, 2015. Jason, who is nearly three months old, is being tended and bottle-fed by zoo staff, as his mother fell sick while he was days old and has been unable to feed him. He will be brought up separately from the zoo's other eight chimpanzees for about a year and a half, and then gradually reintroduced in a painstaking process aiming at his full acceptance by the group and integration.

A three month old chimpanzee named Jason is being raised by zookeepers since his mother became ill shortly after his birth. Attica Zoo in Greece has been ensuring the baby chimpanzee gets hand-fed and is given tons of maternal love. Jason will be cared for by zoo staff for at least a year and a half before he can be slowly introduced into independent zoo living with the other chimps. See the heartwarming photos above.
