  • Character: Enthusiastic

Job was orphaned at three days old when his mother died of meningitis at the University of Georgia (UGA). Due to the loss of his mother, Job had to be human reared, which made him more “humanized” than the other six capuchins who arrived with him from UGA.

Job has a very unique greeting towards humans that he likes -- putting his hands over his ears and joyfully screeching. Job lives with his uncle Xavier and they have been together since they were both juveniles; they have a great relationship. It is difficult to imagine that Job lived his entire life in a lab. From the moment he was released into his outdoor habitat, Job knew exactly how to behave and play like only a monkey knows how. His favorite pastimes are chasing bugs, pulling up the plants and climbing in the bamboo. Job adapted brilliantly to outdoor life at Jungle Friends.
