Mikki and her companion Coco spent many years of their lives in entertainment, going to parties and events as organ-grinder monkeys with The Hurdy Gurdy Man for over three decades. Now the Hurdy Gurdy Girls have retired to a more natural monkey life in Florida. Now Mikki and Coco are living their golden years at Jungle Friends.

The Hurdy Gurdy Girls have made quite a hit with everyone at the sanctuary. You had better keep some nuts in your pocket if you are passing by their habitat, once spotted, Mikki will run to you clap twice and offer her hand to be filled with treats, if you don’t have a treat, she will clap and clap and clap, until you are persuaded to go and get one. Mikki is very demanding!
