I was born in a research lab on September 4th, 1985 to my mother Negra and father Tarzan. I was used in my first biomedical research study at a mere 17 months old, and had 8 liver biopsies before I turned 2. More studies and biopsies were to follow, but all this stopped in 2002 when nice people showed up and told me I was “rescued”.
I love sanctuary life and despite all the pain I’ve been through, I have a sunny attitude. I’m a sweet girl with a sassy side and prefer attention from my chimp friends, but will enthusiastically greet the care staff each morning and demand a quick tickle with the “tickle-stick.” I love meal time and am always front and center waiting for the delicious fresh produce we receive three times a day. I love to be outside in the Florida sun and am usually the first one out the door after a meal. I spend my days relaxing with my family, sunning on the patio, wandering around the island while foraging, and forming grooming parties out on the island structures. In other words, I’m enjoying my retirement to its fullest.
