Booger was bred in captivity for research. He arrived at Jungle Friends with seven other capuchins. These boys were used in iron-toxicity studies and spent years in a metal cage – all alone. This study is over and all of the monkeys are now in sanctuary retirement. Booger is very dominant, although shy, and he is the most gentle when he is handed special treats by his caregivers. See more about the Ironmen here!
