Norman arrived at Jungle Friends in April of 2015 after the lab where he’d previously lived closed its doors. Poor Norman arrived without a partner, so he had to figure out his strange new home all alone. Because of this, he was one of the last monkeys to venture into his outdoor habitat. After about a month at Jungle Friends, though, his luck changed! Norman was successfully paired with a female cotton-top, and with her help he became much braver about exploring the outside world. He now spends much of his time lounging around outside, where he enjoys watching his neighbors and grooming his partner.
