Date of birth 1972.02.15
Place of birth Wild
Current facility Akita Omoriyama Zoo Milve
The individual's capacity for locomotion is high, showing a beautiful jump to catch a banana. As he was trained to rope dancing when he was young, he sometimes bipedally crosses a wire extended between towers. Recently, he becomes breathless soon after display.
This individual has a straightforward character, but he is fearful when he gets angry. He seems not to appropriately correspond to Noriko.
