Leo and six other capuchins were retired to sunny Florida after spending their entire lives at the University of Georgia (UGA) lab.

Leo has gained so much confidence since venturing into the great outdoors; he explored every inch of his new habitat and enjoys moving to different habitats and meeting new neighbors. During his time at the lab Leo was known for mastering computer tasks quickly in all experiments.

Leo's IT skills have been traded in for lounging in the sun, chasing bugs, climbing in the trees and avoiding the rain showers. One of his favorite treats is popcorn. Leo will take as much of the popcorn as he can -- filling his mouth, hands and feet with the special treat. Leo is a happy monkey who is inquisitive and friendly.
