- Background: Research
- Character: Tentative
Zack, named after his sponsor’s son, arrived at Jungle Friends after the closure of the primate research lab where he had lived his entire life. He and his partner were among the first 20 monkeys to be retired to the sanctuary, and he’s now enjoying a great new life.
Zack, a shy and cautious monkey, has been slower than some of the other monkeys to fully adjust to his new environment. He was very unsure of the great outdoors, and was hesitant to get too far away from the entry to his indoor enclosure. He is a fan of the new variety of food and he’ll often clean his bowl completely! Zack is also one of the most handsome cotton-tops in all of Munchkinland-- his full head of white hair is quite striking!
