Born 1975, possibly in the wild
Jody was used primarily for breeding during her years of use by the biomedical research industry, and had a total of nine babies during this time. In between her pregnancies, the industry managed to also use her in hepatitis vaccine research. Jody enthusiastically greets her sanctuary caregivers in the morning and likes to be gently groomed by them. She is thought to be the second in command next to Jamie, occasionally vying for the top position. Jody likes to make nests out of the blankets, sheets, clothes, and magazines that are provided to her at the sanctuary. In fact, she gathers as many of these as she can find and makes huge nests -- sometimes with fifteen or more blankets at a time.
