Kirsty The Monkey


Type : Rhesus Macaque
Sex : Female
Age : Approx. 2 Years old on arrival
Date of Arrival : 26th October 2008

Kirsty was handed over to us by the Forestry Department, who found her wandering around Panaji, where she was either abandoned or escaped from being kept as a pet.

When she first arrived at the Tree House she was very nervous of humans but was very interested in the other monkeys and keen to get at them. At first she was kept on her own while we ran health checks on her but as soon as she was checked out she was put in an older female. Kirsty has never thought much of humans although she knows and goes out with male staff. Kirsty now lives with Kia.
