Commando was a baby when he was rescued by the IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) in a “commando”-raid in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic from poachers. This raid saved his life and he was named Commando. Since he suffered from malnutrition, scabies, hookworms, a damaged wall of the stomach and his upper teeth were missing, he had a small chance of survival. First he went to the neighbour town Zemio, from there he was brought to Nairobi in Kenya, and from there he was brought to Chimfunshi. He survived – he now lives in enclosure 4.
