Peanut is a female golden-cheeked gibbon.

She was smuggled from Vietnam at a young age for the illegal pet trade and was sold to a British bird smuggler.

She came to Monkey World on 25th August 2000 and lived with an older female golden-cheeked gibbon named Zoey. When she was older, Peanut was paired with a male golden-cheeked gibbon named Pung-Yo.

Peanut and Pung-Yo have had three children; Tien (born 2006), Tia Nang (born 2009) and Teo (born 2011) whom have all moved out of the family enclosure (Tien now lives in a seperate enclosure with his mate Kim, Tia Nang now lives in Parc Animalier de Sainte Croix in France with her mate Zak (who is Kim's younger brother) whilst Teo lives in a seperate enclosure next door to Mikado (whom he used to live with and was originally Tia-Nang's mate)).

In 2016, Peanut became a grandmother after Tien and Kim had a son. Sadly the infant died shortly after birth.
