  • Character: Curious

Frodo was purchased as a “pet” in a state where monkeys are illegal. Frodo was confiscated when he was only six months old and placed at Jungle Friends so he could live with other monkeys. Having never been around other monkeys, he was shy at first and timid around the other monkeys, but soon he started to show interest in another young white-faced capuchin. It wasn’t long before Frodo was wrestling and playing with his new companion. He has a lot of energy and enjoys showing off or threatening his neighboring monkeys. One of his favorite activities is to roll around in the mud, making him almost unrecognizable. He spends most of his days playing with his companion or ripping up grass to make more room for mud!
