Nick is a very handsome and clever monkey. At the University of Georgia (UGA) lab, before he arrived at Jungle Friends, he learned to exchange tokens for treats, and he still does this. He often wants to trade a monkey biscuit for something tastier. If his caregivers are not paying attention to the trade offered, quite often they will get hit by a flying biscuit…just Nick’s way of getting their attention.

Nick loves the sunshine and has gained a wonderful tan since arriving at Jungle Friends, but he is not sure about the rain and runs for cover when the rain showers hit. Nick is super inquisitive and loves to sit on his jungle gym and watch his monkey neighbors. He often takes some of his meal back to the highest point of his jungle gym and enjoys his food while watching what is going on.
