Bloom was one of 66 cotton-top tamarins retired to Jungle Friends after the closure of a major research lab. Bloom and his partner were in the first group of 20 to come to their new sanctuary home.

Bloom is a shy boy who tends to avoid people; however, Bloom and his partner are two of the bravest tamarins when it comes to their outdoor habitat. Though it took a while for the two of them to go outside, the two friends spend more time outside than any other pair. Bloom enjoys sitting on the highest branch he can reach and basking in the sunshine, something he was never able to do at the laboratory.
