|The Chimfunshi sanctuary accepts other animals besides chimpanzees.|
Billy the hippo came to Chimfunshi as a baby and she's never left. The house must be fortified - gates across doorways - to keep Billy from coming inside.
Billy regards Sheila as her mother and even though Billy is full grown, Sheila still feeds her with two bottles of milk everyday. Billy uses an extra large feeding bowl and sleeps in a pool next to the house.
Communing with chimps.
