Bailey was a pet whose owner sought to find her a better home where she could associate with other monkeys. Bailey arrived at the PRC from Ohio in 2002 and was introduced to Dewey, a fellow rhesus macaque. She bonded with Dewey immediately and, to our dismay, produced two offspring. Although we do everything possible to curtail breeding, these two have foiled our attempts—hopefully, for the last time.

Bailey is an excellent mother to her son Sawyer and daughter Jane, and has always been extremely nurturing and protective of her children. She is often observed grooming them and snuggling up for an afternoon nap. Bailey is very observant and loves to watch all the sanctuary happenings. Anytime the neighboring monkeys have a little squabble, Bailey is intent on watching the action and vocalizing to her family.

This beautiful girl is certainly not a picky eater and always eats every item in her forage of fruits, veggies, lettuce and nuts, however some of Bailey’s very favorite foods are bananas, sweet potatoes, spinach and peanuts.

A Mother’s Love

When we think of Mother’s Day, it’s usually a day to spend time with mothers and show them our appreciation and love. But not everyone is that lucky. Human, ape, and monkey alike, some of us aren’t able to be with our mother on this special day. Most primates...
