The Youma was founded by two evicted Pandora females and Baobab in mid late 2014. The Baobab males soon abandon the group to join the Pandora, displacing two males from there who joined the Youma. Males from the Pandora joined the group while one of the females returned to the Pandora, only later to rejoin the group with another female. None of the males took dominance and were eventually replaced by Chalibonkas males led by Boabab male Bumpy.
After Boetie rejoined the Pandora, Mandela became the only female in the group so she took dominance by default. Male dominance has been uncurtain since the start. In August, a group of Chalibonkas males left by ex-dominant male Bumpy joined the group.
The Youma have 15 members as of October 2015.
Mandela (VPAF018) Dominant Female
Bumpy (VBB042) Dominant Male
