Burrito has seen a lot in his 34 years – he was born in a laboratory, raised as a pet, shipped off to a circus, and then put back into Hepatitis vaccine research for two decades. But perhaps his biggest challenge came when he was finally able to join a social group.
Chimpanzees who were raised by humans typically struggle to fit in with other chimps. It’s like being dropped off in another country where you can’t speak the language and don’t understand the laws.
Because of this, Burrito is always getting in trouble with his group mates. But with a face like this, and the ability to turn on the charm when necessary, no one can stay mad for long.
