Corky was kept as a 'pet' in a birdcage and fed hardly enough to stay alive. Corky was weak from malnourishment, his muscles had atrophied and his little legs could barely support him. We were doubtful that he would survive, but we were not about to give up on Corky's strong spirit! Today, you would not recognize Corky as that same fragile monkey; he is big and strong and very handsome. Corky enjoys the company of the other monkeys and has taken on the role of protecting his friends.
