Fun FactsJane had always loved animals and Africa. As a child she was given a lifelike chimpanzee toy named Jubilee by her father. Her fondness for the toy started her early love of animals. Today the toy still sits on her dresser in London. As she writes in her book "reason for Hope". Jane and her sister Judith share the same birthday even though they are 4yrs apart.When studying the chimpanzees she gave each one a unique name that reflected their personalities. For example she named one David Greybeard because he had a grey chin Other names included Gigi, Mr. McGregor, Goliath, Flo and Frodo.She learned that the chimps expressed emotions such as sadness, anger, and joy. Chimpanzees communicate through sounds, calls, touch, body language and facial expressions. There is a craving of chimp David Greybeard on the tree of life at Disney Worlds Animal Kingdom theme park. Next to it is a plaque on honor of Jane.
