About Me

I was born on March 3, 1997, at The Coulston Foundation, a laboratory in Alamogordo, NM, that closed in 2002. My mother, Betty, tried her best to be a good mother, but just two hours after my birth, the laboratory staff decided that Betty was not competent and that I should be sent to the lab nursery to be raised by laboratory staff. We never saw each other again. When I was just over a year old, I was shipped off to a laboratory in Maryland where I would live in isolation and be used as a biomedical research subject.

In 2006, I was rescued by Save the Chimps. I am now a member of Tapioca’s Group, and I am a tough lady who likes to hang with the rowdy boys in my family. Long gone are the days of isolation and boredom; now I get to explore a large island home with my friends.
