Jill arrived at Jungle Friends as an adult. She had evidently escaped her cage and was found running loose in Kentucky, where 'pet' monkeys are illegal, which is probably why she was not claimed. Jill is a shy monkey who appears to be in good health, except that someone had most of her teeth extracted! She lives comfortably with another capuchin who also has no teeth. Jill has responded to his good will with considerate grooming. She is very sweet and loving.
