Connor b

As an infant and juvenile, Connor was once featured on Hallmark greeting cards, and some of them are still found in stores today. At one point, he was sent from the Missouri facility where he was born to a California trainer whose chimps were also used on greeting cards. However, Connor was soon sent back to Missouri where he lived for years with his sister Candy.

Connor was a very handsome male and was often described as gregarious and outgoing.

He loved to play chase games with Tammy and liked spending time grooming Candy. He would spend time with Tammy washing toys in tubs and pools of water (Tammy’s favorite pastime). Connor liked magazines and often spent time resting while turning page by page through a magazine carefully looking at each picture.

In addition to Candy, Connor’s full siblings at the sanctuary are Natsu and Crystal.
