Name Gon
Sex Male
Species or Subspecies P. t. verus
Date of birth 1966?
Place of birth Wild (Africa)
Current facility Primate Research Institute Kyoto University
Gon is large and a little fat. About 2000, he weighed more than 80 kilograms. Because he got lipomata in his abdomen and the back of his neck, he went through surgical operation. He is still on a slimming diet. He is bad at exercise because he is wide-hipped and he is always taking a nap. When something nasty happens to him, he claps his hand as he shoots out his lip and hoots.
Gon reigned over the group as a leader when he was young. Now, he is retired since he gave the position as a leader to Akira. He is gentle and doesn't deceive people or chimpanzees. He lives in his own way and peacefully.
