About Me

I came to Save the Chimps in 2016 from a private owner. I had a bit of a rocky start in life, first as a TV movie star where a trainer had all my teeth removed. I was then sold to a breeder who put me in a cage with an older aggressive female who bit me repeatedly. Then I went to a farm where I was safe but lived without the companionship of another chimp.

When I came to Save the Chimps, I quickly made an impression on our staff and chimps alike with my non-stop desire to play! I quickly made friends in the Special Needs Building, in a small family group of Walden, Garrey, Millie, and Geraldine. Always a bright spot in everyone’s day, I am known for demanding the attention of anyone and everyone within my field of view for a play session. I even convinced Millie, a sweet but quiet and shy female in my group, to have gentle play sessions with me.
