Pipperoo, also known as Pippi, arrived at Jungle Friends when she was 21 years old. Pippi was rescued after she had several owners and bounced from home to home. Pippi's rescuer then brought her to Jungle Friends because, at 70+ years old, she knew that Pippi would most likely outlive her. Pippi is a very sweet little monkey -- and she is also diabetic. Diabetes in 'pet' monkeys is due to a poor or unbalanced diet, lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle and stress. At Jungle Friends, Pippi lives with other monkeys and is getting along even better than we hoped. Often you will find Pippi grooming her special monkey friend.
