Born 1974, possibly in the wild.
In addition to being used for hepatitis vaccine studies, Annie had seven babies during her years in biomedical research, all of them taken from her and put into research themselves. Annie is a curious chimpanzee who allows others in the group to take leadership. At the sanctuary she enjoys eating fresh vegetables, especially green onions, which she will eat by the handful. Her favorite activity seems to be playing with her best friend Missy. Annie also enjoys lying down in the elaborate beds that she and Missy make. They often lie down near each other to nap.
