Ellie Mae was purchased as a surrogate child when she was only five weeks old. Ellie Mae seemed to be the perfect ‘pet’ until she started biting. Ellie Mae needed to live with other monkeys and do ‘monkey things’ -- Jungle Friends was called. Ellie Mae won the hearts of everyone at Jungle Friends. She also won the heart of another capuchin and these two are always racing around their habitat, swinging from the ropes, climbing the trees and playing in the buckets.
