Today’s blog is all about how to ID our lovable friend, Cy! Out of all the chimpanzees I have worked with over the years, I have never met a chimp like Cy. Each chimp I have met has amazing and different qualities about them, but Cy is kind to his very core. Even when he is displaying, he has a play face, he just never seems mad.
Cy is a big guy with an even bigger heart!
Cy has the kindest eyes.
Cy has a prominent white beard. From the front he has very dark features, but from behind his hair is more grayish white. We joke that he reminds us of a gorilla from behind!
Cy is an good leader. He knows how to navigate social situations extremely well. He can recognize when to let things go and when to make a point.
Cy is a bibliophile
Cy resembles his sister Lucky quiet a bit!
Cy is the type of guy to become your instant friend. He will want you to play chase, sit while he tickles the back of your hand, or just hangout with him while he reads.
Cy is also stubborn! He and Lucky are often hold outs, like their half sister Honey B!
