• Species: Brown Capuchins (Cebus apella)
  • Gender: Male
  • Birthday: January 1, 1986
  • Arrival: January 6, 2016
  • Background: Research
  • Character: Sweet

Chewy 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. 

Chewy is a such sweet and gentle soul! Even though he is shy at first, he quickly warmed up to Jungle Friends carestaff when he arrived and was the first to lipsmack with us! Chewy was caught in the wild and sold into research, we know he will enjoy spending his golden years back in nature with his monkey friends. See more about the Ironmen here!
