A marmoset arrived at Jungle Friends on April 4, 2015 when he was discovered by a cleaning crew after the tenants moved out of an apartment several days earlier in South Florida. 

Lucky for this little monkey the cleaners caught him, called us and brought him straight to Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. Poor little guy had been alone without food or water for 2-3 days, but he's a survivor! 

He's fully inspected his outdoor habitat, made friends with Arie, and caught his first bug!
