Itchy is one of four cotton-top tamarins that was retired from research after the lab where they previously lived finished its research. Itchy was the first of the four to go outside, and she has been spending most of her time out there ever since!

Itchy enjoys hanging out at the very top of her habitat where she can keep an eye on all the other monkeys around her. Her bravery exploring the outdoors has encouraged her timid partner Wren to explore the great outdoors.
