Former MembersEdit

Charlie was a male chimp. He was born in 1983. He was originally a beach photographer's prop in Spain and was badly abused by his owner (e.g. having all but three of his teeth removed to stop him bitting tourists and being burned by cigarettes). He was rescued and taken to Monkey World in 1989. He was previously Rodney's second-in-command until their group merged with Paddy's Group. After being ousted from the group, Charlie was paired with another male named Pacito and led this group, before he and Pacito were moved to the Bachelor Group. He sadly died in 2009. He was 26 years old.

Pacito is a male chimp. He was born in 1990 and was originally kept as a pet in Spain. He was brought to Monkey World in 1997 and was paired with Charlie who taught him how to be a chimp again. Due to their close bond, the staff decided that Pacito would go with Charlie to live in the Bachelor Group. He is 27/28 years old.


Rodney was a male chimp. He was born in 1968 and was originally from Windsor Safari Park, but was moved to Monkey World following its closure. He was father to Pip, Ben and also possibly Jess and Arfur. He was the original leader of this group until his death in 2004 where he was succeeded by Hananya. He was 36 years since old.

After reaching adolescence in 2008, Pip rejoined her birth group, now led by Hananya, whilst Ben joined the Bachelor Group (after not being accepted by Hananya). She sadly died in on 17th March 2009 from a heart attack. She was 7 years old.
