Lulu is a female chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) who arrived at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in the year 2000 and it is estimated that she was born during 1992. She was born in a circus travelling through Cyprus when her mother attacked her and bit her arm. Lulu’s arm became infected and a Cypriot family saved her life by taking her home and getting their doctor to amputate the poisonous limb. She gets along very well without her right arm, so much so that most people do not realise that she is missing the arm!
