Hello! My name is Angie the 2nd and I was born May 13, 2003. My parents, Hannah and Garfield, gave birth to me here at Save the Chimps. Although Save the Chimps does not deliberately breed chimps, I was born due to a failed vasectomy. Hannah and Garfield were both former Air Force chimps, rescued in 2001 by Save the Chimps. My mom did her best to take care of me, but unfortunately, was not producing any milk. The difficult decision was made to remove me from Hannah and have the amazing Care Staff raise me for about a year.
During that year, I received as much exposure to chimpanzees as possible. When I was about a year old, I was gradually reintroduced to Hannah, Garfield, and the rest of my chimpanzee family. I quickly became known as Princess Angie, I am sassy, headstrong, and spoiled rotten by both my chimpanzee family and human caregivers! To say I’m a goofball is an understatement, and you can frequently see me trying to make everyone laugh. As I’ve grown up, I have become good friends with Kippy and the old lady gang, Emily and Ursula.
