Cheeta turns 76


Cheeta turns 76 today, continuing his run as the oldest living non-human primate. You can donate to the CHEETA sanctuary (which also cares for other ex-movie primates) here.

    That is just really remarkable. I hope his health is decent, the Wiki article says he even has ‘grandkids.’ The CHEETA folks must be doing something right.

    Thanks. I made a donation for 135 dollars because of this post. Can’t wait to get the painting that is done by Cheeta.

    Also, you can buy a Cheeta original art work for a small donation.

    It comes with photos of Cheeta and Johnny Weismuller from the old Tarzan films.

    Man, I hope I look that good when I’m 76! I’d better start working out.
