  • Character: Curious

Einstein arrived at Jungle Friends with seven other capuchins. These boys were used in iron-toxicity studies and spent years in a metal cage – all alone. This study is over and all of the monkeys are now in sanctuary retirement. 

Einstein is very clever and crafty, living up to his name! He keeps active throughout the day, carefully inspecting his toys and surroundings. He likes to play with his biscuits, fitting them through the slots in his cage. Einstein was born in captivity and has never known life in the wild. Jungle Friends carestaff is eager to see how he reacts to his outdoor habitat this spring and the new puzzles and games that living in nature brings. See more about the Ironmen here!
