A mug shot is usually the photographic portrait taken after one is arrested. This Chimp is in Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary, where they have been shifted from Congo as a result of the upraise in bush meat trade. Thanks for Jane Goodall for her research, knowledge and passion for animals, which resulted in the foundation of Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Ol Pejeta conservancy in Kenya.

    Thank you to Jane Goodall indeed. Though I love your linkage of this photo to a mug shot – Assault and Battery charges leap to mind. 🙂
