Aunt Jake arrived at Jungle Friends when she was 30 years old. She was born at Wooster College in Ohio and was used in cognitive and behavioral research her entire life. Aunt Jake and her brother Alex and family friend Aunt Gizmo were able to retire to sunny Florida after the study ended.

Aunt Jake is the only one in the group who is not diabetic. At first she was shy and moved very slowly, but very soon, she was lip smacking and flirting with all of the male monkeys within view. Her neighbors seem to be enjoying the attention.
