Primate Fact of the Day #4: The Chimpanzee was given the Genus Pan because their half-man-half animal form and supposed lust for human women recalled the Greek god of that name.

That's kinda weird. Does she become the alpha female later on?

Yes, provided that the mother doesn't have another daughter. I believe this is a guard against older daughters gaining too much power and usurping their mother.

I posted this on FB yesterday...

Primate Fact of the Day #6: Ham the Chimpanzee (1956-1983) became the very first hominid in space when he was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida on January 31, 1961. He beat the Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin by just over two months.

Primate Fact of the Day #7: The female Japanese Macaque Imo ("Sweet Potato") was like a monkey Julia Childs because generations of her troop adopted her methods of washing potatoes in the ocean, salting them with sea water, and using said water to separate wheat kernels from sand.
