An orphaned chimpanzee now has a new home at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Ruben, born at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, Florida, was left without a caregiver after his mother, Rukiya, died of a heart condition soon after he was born. Zoo officials believed Ruben's father would be incapable of looking after him. After 8 months of trial and error, Ruben now has a family in Kito, his surrogate mother, and her troop thanks to the surrogacy program at Oklahoma City Zoo.
