Date of Birth
Date of Death
Visitors often found Tristan lounging from a high crossbeam that served as his favorite perch. Tristan was an easy-going older guy and had already suffered the loss of his partner, Skylar Binturong, in 2007. After losing Skylar, he liked to keep things quiet but still enjoyed visitors if they came with a banana! Unfortunately, Tristan had allergies that act up seasonally and made his eyes puffy, so he was routinely on medication to try to control them.
