Chewy, a former pet monkey, was brought to Jungle Friends in January of 2016 after he was confiscated. He is our youngest marmoset and act like it! This little guy is a trouble maker who likes to race the older marmosets in the runway next to him and zip back and forth between his habitat and comfortable indoor. He plays so much during the day, that he is often exhausted come nightfall, so he makes a little nest out of blankets in his hammock and passes out until he is woken up for breakfast and can play again! If he’s not outside talking to his neighbors, he is inside, trying to see what treats his good looks can get out if his caretakers.
