Ringo

  • Species: Bolivian Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis)
  • Gender: Male
  • Birthday: June 2, 2003
  • Arrival: November 27, 2007
  • Background: Research
  • Character: Plotter

Ringo was four years old when he arrived at Jungle Friends with his monkey friend Michael. These boys were bred and sold into research for medical studies; fortunately, the study was cancelled before they were 'used'. They narrowly escaped being sold to another laboratory!

Michael and Ringo spend their days getting into an endless amount of mischief! Ringo is a master at plotting how to open the drawer near his enclosure. He also likes draping cold spaghetti over Michael's head and capturing little beetles to keep in his food dish for entertainment.
