The unexpected death of Cinder the hairless chimpanzee at the St. Louis Zoo, Missouri, USA is being investigated by Zoo officials.
Cinder was 14 years old and suffered from alopecia universalis. The death is likely to be unrelated to that condition. She had recently recovered from a cold.
"Cinder's unusual appearance never affected her relationships with the other chimps" said Curator of Primates Ingrid Porton.
