Flora was yet another monkey rescued from the people selling monkeys on the beach. Again she was in very poor condition and highly traumatized but settled in well.

She is now dominated by Shivanee, a highly aggressive female in Snatch's group. Flora would love to have more human attention, but Shivanee makes sure she does not get this by chasing her away. However she often refuses to go inside when we need to clean the outside section of the pen and this way she gets human contact and treats. This can mean at times it is difficult to get new branches and toys in to the outside pen because of the risk of her escaping.

The only problem with her escaping is that there are certain female staff she does not like and there is the risk of her attacking them. She also does a lot of damage in the house as she loves opening cupboards and throwing everything out whilst searching for treats.
