Meet Tani


Tani was born at the Centre International de Recherches Médicales de Franceville (CIRMF) from Typhen (her mother) and Djoutou (her father). She spent most of her 18 years at the CIRMF with Caroline (her sister) and Cola (see above). Tani, unlike her sister Caroline, is boisterous and curious. She is always up for a challenge, is curious and loves to explore her environment. She is very brave and sometimes imposes herself to Cola until she gets what she wants. Along with Caroline and Cola, she was transferred from the CIRMF to the PGFV on August 4th, 2014.
