What stands out about Primarily Primates’ resident Nicole, a chimpanzee, is that while small in stature, she has a huge personality. So who do you think is the boss in her troop? Of course, Nicole is. And being the diva she is she loves to comb her own hair, but she also enjoys getting groomed by Jessie. Nicole was born on July 21, 1991 at the Coulston Foundation, a primate testing lab that has since shuttered its doors after years of mounting regulatory problems and opposition from animal advocates. Before arriving at Primarily Primates, Nicole was loaned out to other research labs by Coulston.

Now thriving at Primarily Primates, in addition to her grooming sessions, she loves it when care staff uses the bubble machine for her enrichment.
