Zabbu was confiscated by Florida Fish and Wildlife when she was just a baby. She was malnourished and had a broken arm due to metabolic bone disease. Fortunately, a local rehabber rescued her. After Zabbu’s rescuer volunteered at Jungle Friends, she made sure that Zabbu had a forever home at Jungle Friends. Now Zabbu lives in Munchkinland with other marmosets and tamarins. Zabbu’s favorite time is mealtime, and she is a champion eater! She can usually be found in her habitat looking for bugs to eat, or in her runway watching everything going on around her.
