Phil

  • Species: Golden-Handed Tamarins (Saguinus midas)
  • Gender: Male
  • Birthday: March 1, 2002
  • Arrival: March 9, 2006
  • Background: Ex-Pet
  • Character: Adventurous

Phil arrived at Jungle Friends with his twin sister Lil. 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.

Phil and Lil are easily the most active pair of monkeys in Munchkinland, and Phil spends a lot of his time running across the ropes and branches in his habitat. He’s also got quite the appetite, and will come running inside as fast as he can if he thinks food is on the way!
