Chimi is the resorts Capuchin monkey that steals everyone’s hearts when they visit. Chimi was a rescued monkey at 1 month of age. See pictures and read what she’s been up to.
One evening a man approached Linda and Larry with a tiny, shivering, ill, Capuchin monkey with a wound on its leg with worms infested in it. Knowing this poor creature had little hope of surviving, we took it home.
The wound proved to be resistant to most antibiotics and Chimi was very ill for many months till we hit upon the right combination of medication. In the meantime, Chimi adopted Linda as mom and clung around her neck all day and frequently all night when Linda would sneak her into our bed.
Chimi is now an adult and still sweet and cuddly BUT is nervous around children after being mistreated by a group of rough boys. She now had a huge house where our staff and family visit and play with her.
