Aprender was a common squirrel monkey who lived in a poorly-funded zoo in Central America. He however had been known to bite body parts off of unexpecting tourists, though the primate was continuously used as a photo prop by the oblivious staff. However, one night, Aprender escaped from his cage somehow, only to go in a rather nasty squabble with a spider monkey tethered on a tree nearby, and accidentally falling into the crocodile pit. He had been shredded to bits by the reptiles.
