Bob (b. 27th January 1994 d. 1998, aged 4) was a male chimpanzee. He was the son of Rodney and Jane (who later died in September 1995) and was the half-brother of Arfur, Jess, Ben and Pip and the uncle of Rodders. He was a member of Charlie's Group.
Bob was hand-reared by Monkey World's Animal Director Jeremy Keeling before being put into the park's nursery group with his half-siblings Arfur and Jess to be cared for by Sally. In 1996, they were joined by four young male chimps: Simon (who was rescued from Spain), Hananya, Tikko, Gypsy and Semach (all of whom came from Isreal). In 1998, they were joined by a young female chimp named Trudy (who had been abused by circus trainer Mary Chipperfield).
Tragically, that same year, Bob fell ill from a stomach infection and despite the staff's best efforts, he sadly passed away.
In 2005, Bob postumously became an uncle to Jess and Hananya's son Rodders.
