I was born March 16, 1990, at The Coulston Foundation, a research lab in Alamogordo, NM, to my mother Samantha, and my father Bubba. I was taken from my mother within 12 hours of birth and raised in the laboratory nursery. Eventually, I was moved into a barren building dubbed “The Dungeon,” for it’s dark and dismal conditions.
There I remained until 2002 when Save the Chimps took over The Coulston Foundation and rescued me and 265 other chimpanzees. Today I live in a chimpanzee family known as Tanya’s Group. Together we share a spacious island home with rolling hills and trees. I am a friendly, handsome chimpanzee who is loved by all who know me.
