Mirinda is about as nice a chimpanzee as you could hope to meet. She's in her mid-twenties and solidly built, but she isn't high-ranking. She's very social and good-natured, and popular with the other chimps and human observers alike. She's the queen of grooming, always happy to groom other chimps even if they don't always groom her in return.
A mother of four (Jemima, Gerald, Merrick and Maria), and grandmother of one (Kasatu), Mirinda has passed on her even, friendly temperament to all of her offspring. Her close-knit family form a calm and stable core of Bulindi society. Mirinda is easily recognised by her round brown face and floppy right ear.
