She was bought to the IAR centre at about 9 months old. It is very likely that she was one of the same group of babies being sold on the beach in 2005/6 that we missed. She joined the troop of 6 we had rescued and immediately took on the role of lead female.

She is very strong and dominating and will attack women, who she thinks are inferior. However she will go to men so long as Snatch, the lead male, is not in that section of the pen but will attack men viciously if Snatch is there. This is because she is expected to show loyalty to him as the Alpha male.
