Character
Soon after the individual is given something to eat, she would still keep asking another for food while beating a fence with her hands. She had tenaciously been utilizing soybean feeders (in the days of Kumamoto Primate Research Park, Sanwa Kagaku Kenkyusho Co., Ltd). She has raised two children, and thus is very good at nurturing a child. She has inner strength and is a striver; nevertheless, She has a bad habit of scratching his/her head when stressed out. Probably because it is middle aged, She is very slow to ascend or descend a tower.
