Chloe was born around 1969 and is the oldest of the chimpanzees. She came to the zoo at age six after living in a pet and circus environment. Because of her background, Chloe had to learn to be less of a human and more of a chimp. She continues to display human characteristics such as walking on two feet and eating daintily.
A very playful chimp, Chloe loves food. Recently she has become the dominant chimpanzee when it comes to her food and enrichment, signaling the other chimps to stay away from both. Musical instruments are some of her favorite enrichment objects.
