This beautiful chimpanzee is turning 44 on Monday. It’s hard to believe because she never seems to age. Some of Annie’s youthful look could be attributed to the fact she occasionally spikes her hair, as seen in these photos from this afternoon (this is actually due to the unique way that she washes her face and head each day).
But I’d like to think it has something to do with living the sanctuary life.
Make sure to check back on Monday for photos and video of Annie’s birthday bash – a day filled with all of her favorite things (like sunflowers and green onions by the handful!).
