Feature
[Japanese studbook number: Symphalangus syndactylus #26]
The individual had eight children with Seven and raised them by itself.
Her detailed history before she came to Hirakawa, including her birth year, has been unknown. Considering that she gave birth in 1993, her age at death would presumably be 22 years or older. (data suppliment in Sept. 2014: We found the old records in 2014. She was born in Japan Monkey Centre. Her mother was Mari, father was Guernica.)
Although Monroe has already died, her descendants can be seen at zoos in the country. The full-fledged children include Jean, Kanna, and Setsu in Hirakawa, Carly(Sun) in Sasebo, and Nana in Tennoji. There are two grandchildren, Lien {0172} and unknown {0047}, and the number of grandchildren should further increase in the future.
