Comments / pictures

"The first Group was called the "A" family and the Adult females in that family were named with letters beginning with "A" with one exception. The female with the wart on her ear never got an "A" name but continued to be designated Wart Ear. "

" The AA family did better than most families and stayed together, probably because there was an older female, Wart Ear, to take over, and the younger females were not confused about who to look to for direction. In 1974 Wart Ear was 30 years old; the other females were all under 25. "
