Dating Games & Name the Baby Contest

November 4, 2011

Dear Friend of Jungle Friends,

Oops! The draft of this email was accidentally sent on Wednesday... Please accept our apologies and see below for the full stories and corrected links.

If you have been wondering how the 'Dating Game' is going for Blair since our last Jungle News post, we have some interesting developments in Marmoset Village. Without trepidation, Blair quickly acclimated to her new surroundings and grabbed the heart of little Momo. She is very interested in him, and he is clearly enamored of her charms. We plan to introduce them very soon, so stay tuned!

This budding romance is especially poignant knowing of Blair's loss before her arrival -- her companion at the zoo died recently. The zoo officials tell us that she was heartbroken when she lost her friend. We are so happy we could offer Blair a new home and a new chance for love.  Blair and Momo need sponsors!

Elizabeth and her baby

As many of you know, we had a couple of baby monkey additions this year...  Michelle's baby girl was born on April 11, 2011, and Elizabeth’s little boy was born July 1, 2011.

As a sanctuary, Jungle Friends has a no-breeding policy, so it was quite a surprise to find expectant mothers turning up!

It was all due to a failed vasectomy in the Texas Rescue group. Of course we quickly separated the possible papas from the other girls, and the situation will be remedied on V-Day, less than two weeks away.

Now the two lovely little babies need names.
