Sandra, the orangutan with excellent personal hygiene, was born Rostock Zoologischer Garten in Germany. She spent most of her time in Buenos Aires where she was forced to live alone, without no other orangutans keeping her company. Luckily Sandra was granted legal personhood by a judge in Argentina thus entitling her to better living conditions.

In January, Sandra has celebrated her 34 birthday and had a lovely birthday party thrown by her new caretakers.
