A chimpanzee mother, Vuavua, chases away flies circling the body of her dead infant, Veve, at Bossou, Guinea. She uses her hands and a twig tool (a fly-whisk). Veve died two days previously, of a respiratory disease. Vuavua continued to carry her dead infants body for a total of 19 days after death, during which period the corpse mummified.
