10-year old Jenny is the daughter of Bulindi's oldest chimp, Joyce, from whom she inherited her long, gangly frame. Since reaching adolescence, Jenny's caused quite a stir among the Bulindi males. She frequently exhibits a large pink swelling of her perineal skin, and consequently she's very attractive to the males. Since most of the adult females are nursing young infants, Jenny reluctantly finds herself the exclusive recipient of the males' interest, and she's often the unwitting cause of boisterous social excitement in the group. Things will calm down for poor Jenny once she becomes pregnant in the next year or so.
Jenny enjoys baby-sitting for older sister Leila, and oftens carries Leila's infant Wendy.
