Wanda is a petite female who arrived at the sanctuary when she was 6 years old. Wanda came to Jungle Friends by way of another sanctuary after her monkey companion there had passed on. It was felt that Jungle Friends would have more friends available for Wanda to choose from. This has proven true, as Wanda has made very good friends with several of the Jungle Friends monkeys. They cuddle together at night, and Wanda loves to groom and play with her monkey friends. Wanda is a very sweet and mild mannered monkey, and gives an ear-piercing shriek when she spots a favorite caregiver or volunteer approaching.
