Africa U.S.A.

Princess Margaret

The "royalty" of Africa U.S.A. was Princess Margaret. Adopted as an infant chimp by the Pedersen family, Margaret was raised just like a human child. She entertained countless people with her personality and charm and that great smile. She loved to wear frilly dresses and especially enjoyed riding her bicycle around Africa U.S.A. and on shopping excursions to buy new clothes. She appeared many times on the Tonight Show with Jack Paar. During the day she had her own Cape Cod style "house" in the main entrance building where arriving guests could watch her at play. At night she went home with the Pedersens, occasionally swinging from the crystal chandelier!
