Xavier is gentle and very friendly; he lives with his nephew Job. Of the seven University of Georgia monkeys to arrive at the sanctuary, Xavier is the most vocal at meal times -- he just loves to eat!

When he was released into his new outdoor habitat he was reluctant to go on the grass and he spent most of his time climbing around the top of the habitat or relaxing in the sun. With the encouragement from the fearless Job, Xavier started to explore the grass and logs placed on the ground. He never stays on the ground for long and has been spotted using Job as a stepping stone to get himself back to higher ground.

Xavier loves to get the attention of his neighbors by smacking his lips, raising his eyebrows and cocking his head from side to side. Xavier and his friends will spend the rest of their lives living the good life in the Florida sunshine.
