There is nothing simple about Simon, who arrived at Jungle Friends fit and ready for action! Simon lived in two different pet shops. Although he wasn't 'for sale', Simon lived in the store with the other exotic 'merchandise'. Confined to an indoor cage, Simon could not get the sunlight needed for young bones to grow strong. His space was not sufficient for him to expend his enormous energy. No wonder Simon was biting the customers! Which is why Jungle Friends was contacted -- Simon moved out of the pet shop and joined the other monkeys in Squirrel Land. Now Simon has monkey friends and plenty of space and sunshine.
