Bedonde(VBBM094) was born in December 2013 in the Baobab. His mother was Amarula, the dominant female, and his father was an unknown rover. His litter-mates were Bandy Borehole(VBBM091), Beans(VBBM092), and Bernard(VBBF093). They were Amarula's first surviving litter. All four of them survived their first month and started foraging with the adults. It wasn't long before Amurula had another litter. By then, Bedonde and his siblings could care for themselves. Bedonde went roving for the first time at just eleven months of age. A month later, Bedonde reached adulthood along with his brothers and sister. In May 2015, Bedonde left the group along with four other Baobab males.

Drie Doring

The Baobab males joined the Drie Doring, who had recently lost their long-term dominant female Mist. None of Mist's daughters had taken up the position of dominant female, and none of the immigrant males established dominance. By the end of the month there was no clear dominant pair. Eventually, Parmesan established female dominance, and Butch established male dominance. Bedonde stayed in the Drie Doring until he died in May 2016 from TB.
