Sally's Chimpanzees

(Pan troglodytes)  Click here to Adopt a Primate now

VISITOR NOTICE: Sally's outside enclosure is  currently undergoing refurbishment, so the group can only be seen in their indoor playroom for the next few weeks. (01/12/2016)

Sally

Sally is a female chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) who was used as a photographer’s prop in Spain. She arrived at Monkey World on 10/11/93 and we estimate she was born during 1989. Sally was moved to the nursery on 15/04/95 and proved to be a very good and caring adoptive mother for the many babies we have rescued. Sally is a very good role model for the younger chimps and encourages them to play outside. Her personality is adventurous and mischievous. While most chimps dislike water, Sally often plays and bathes in the pool during the summer.

Ash Countries of rescue/origin: Ash

Ash is a female chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) who was born at the park on 13/09/05. Her mother, Cathy had a bad reaction to the birth control pill so we let her get pregnant. Mum Cathy cared for her for a week but the baby was slowly dehydrating, probably because she was not getting enough milk. On the 7th day Cathy finally rejected the upset infant. Luckily for Ash she was cared for by the Primate Care Staff, along with Rodders for the first year of her life. Now she lives with the rest of our chimpanzee nursery group.

Bryan Countries of rescue/origin: Bryan

Bryan arrived at Monkey World on 8/12/06 and we estimate that he was born during 2003. He was smuggled from the wild in Africa, through Cuba, and then onto Mexico where he was purchased by a beach photographer. Mexican authorities confiscated Bryan but not before the photographer knocked out all but four of his teeth. We know this was terribly painful and traumatic for Bryan because during his health check we found pieces of his broken baby teeth embedded in his gums.

Lulu

Lulu is a female chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) who arrived at Monkey World on 14/10/00 and we estimate that she was born during 1992. She was born in a circus travelling through Cyprus when her mother attacked her and bit her arm. Lulu’s arm became infected and a Cypriot family saved her life by taking her home and getting their doctor to amputate the poisonous limb. She gets along very well without her right arm so much so that most people do not realise that she is missing the arm.

Rodders

Rodders is a male chimpanzee who was born at the park on 03/08/05. His mother, Jess did not always take her birth control pill so we started giving her birth control injections. Rodders was conceived the week the injections began! Jess cleaned the baby but then left him and walked away. Our Primate Care Staff cared for Rodders and Ash for their first year until they were introduced to Sally in the chimpanzee nursery. Rodders remains one of Sally’s favourite youngsters although he gets away with much less naughty antics than he used to. Rodders remains very close to his adopted sister Ash.
