Chaos had a difficult childhood. Her mother was always running away from bad “boyfriends” and so she rarely had other monkeys her age to play with. There were several tragic losses in her family, as her matriline separated from its social group twice. Finally, after losing all her adult female relatives, she became the first female capuchin monkey to ever migrate to a new group.
Please go to her facebook page here to learn more background about her life and send her a friend request.
