I was born in the wild and captured in the late 1960s. My mother and other family members were most likely shot and killed so that I could be captured. I was transported over to the United States, and ended up in a biomedical research lab, where I was used as a test subject and a breeder. During my time in the lab, I gave birth to four children who were taken from me to be raised by humans in the nursery.
After more than 30 years in research, I was rescued in 2002. Today I am a member of Seve’s family, and enjoy the company of my longtime friend Cartier. I prefer to relax and curl up in a cozy nest of blankets, but don’t hesitate to keep the rambunctious boys in line if needed!
