Max and April arrived at Jungle Friends with their former “owner” who lived with the monkeys in a 5th Wheel. Max and April spent their days driving from state to state posing with people at fairs and carnivals. At 75 years old, the “owner” decided he and the monkeys were ready to retire. Thanks to donations made by our Jungle Friends’ supporters we were able to raise the funds to build a habitat for these two beautiful capuchins.

Max is quite the chatterbox and he loves sucking on grapes, squishing them between his fingers and lapping up the juice. He spends much of his time travelling through the runway between two habitats, making friends with his new neighbors. After 29 years of living in diapers and tethered by leashes, Max is finally able to live without restraints and is enjoying his new larger life.
