It’s not clear if the chimpanzee that Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, Florida, said died on December 24 at the age of 80 was indeed Cheetah, the chimpanzee sidekick in the early 1930s Tarzan movies. Here are three other animals whose identity and age we are surer of, and whose passing in 2011 was mourned around the globe. A fourth animal is now “off the radar” and, one hopes, now swimming somewhere back in †Antartica.
