Totto and Sophie

Nothing has pleased me more than seeing how well the relationship between Totto and Sophie has worked out. She has always been a difficult monkey; with unexplained hatreds for some of the others. You remember that MonaLisa was her surrogate mother. For a time she would tolerate no other company. When we finally separated them, she pined for a long time. Totto has been a cause for concern because of his aggression. He is a big monkey and he does not encourage familiarity. His moods have always been difficult to interpret. The friendship between them has worked a miracle in both cases. Totto is much calmer and now approachable. Sophie is obviously devoted to him; she is always by his side. He courteously shows her great deference especially at meal times.
