This beauty is Chance, our beautiful little Chancie. She is the older half sister of Petra, they have the same father, Walter. In this photo, Chance (who really has big problems with cameras, so we have so few photos of her because of that,) was hiding behind Petra, thinking she was not in the photo. So, that is a great way to catch the ever elusive little Chance. She is wonderful, and now since Pepper’s passing she has the big job of trying to be the best companion to Sue Ellen. 
 
Chance was born by caesarian to a Hepatitis B mother. Luckily she was born without the disease, but this did not stop her from ending up living in isolation for her first 5 years. She had no chimpanzee companions and little human contact. The story of her early years in the labs is truly unforgivable.
