Birth Month: July

When she first arrived at the sanctuary, Maxi was always interested in what care staff was up to – but now that’s she’s been introduced to a larger family, she’s way too busy with her new chimp friends to give them the time of day. She’s extremely smart and loves toys (she can always been seen carrying around three or four of her favorites). She’s also got a mischievous streak, and likes to “steal” items and craft them into tools. No doubt this smart lady will keep us on our toes!
