  • Gender: Female
  • Birthday: March 1, 2002
  • Arrival: March 9, 2006
  • Background: Ex-Pet
  • Character: Sweet

Lil arrived at Jungle Friends with her twin brother Phil. The two had been kept as ‘pets’ until their family moved to California, where monkeys are illegal. The family contacted Jungle Friends in the hopes of giving this rambunctious pair a good life.

Lil and her brother are the most energetic pair in all of Munchkinland! She can often be found leaping from branch to branch through her habitat, and her acrobatics are certainly something to watch! Lil is also fond of stretching out on her back in the sun while her brother grooms her.
