Hawk arrived at Jungle Friends in April of 2015 along with 32 other cotton-top tamarins after the lab where they’d previously lived closed its doors. Hawk has done a complete 180 since coming to Jungle Friends. When he first arrived with his partner, Fawn, he was shy and introverted: he would only take treats after Fawn showed him it was okay. Now, he is the star of the show! He comes up to the side of his indoor habitat to greet the caregivers every morning for a slice of banana, then races outside to get Fawn and tell her it is time for breakfast.
