  • Background: Ex-Pet

Louie was kept as a pet to family that provided him and Krsna with their own large outdoor habitats as well as indoor enclosures. Kari and our habitat builder at the time even helped the family design the habitats to provide Louie and Krnsa the most enriching environment. When one of the family members became very ill and required traveling to different states for treatment, providing Louie and Krsna with the care they needed became very difficult therefore, Louie and Krsna were brought to Jungle Friends. 

Louie is a very outgoing monkey who loves to make noise and try to scare his caregivers as they walk by. He can also be a big flirt when he sees someone he likes, sometimes so much of a flirt he won’t even acknowledge food being given to him. Louie can also be bit of a trouble maker breaking things in his habitat right after they have been fixed. Louie has not met the right friend yet but we are still hopefully that one day this flirty boy will have a friend of his own species to play with.
