Raya was born in a laboratory, where she was used in studies on vocal cord development. Fortunately for her, the lab decided to retire her from research, and she was retired to Jungle Friends.

Despite having never been outside, Raya quickly adapted to outdoor life. Though she’s still very shy around humans, she’s very curious about the other monkeys and interested in her new environment. Raya and her best friend can often be seen climbing the trees, catching bugs and sunning themselves. Raya is very inquisitive, she will sit atop her favorite branch and watch everything going on around her.
