Monk Monk was a privately owned primate whose “home” was a birdcage. She was in a hoarding situation and lived with hundreds of dogs and cats. Monk Monk’s “owner” had a stroke and Jungle Friends was contacted.

Monk Monk is very tiny, perhaps due to a poor diet and lack of sunshine. She could barely stand or walk, her muscles had atrophied. With a good diet, an "Almost Wild" habitat and her new monkey friends, you would not recognize her! Monk Monk is happy and healthy!

Monk Monk was introduced to Maggie, another white-faced capuchin shortly after her arrival. Unfortunately, a few months later Maggie passed away. Monk Monk was then introduced to one of Jungle Friend's co-founders Charlotte, who had recently lost her sister Samantha to cancer. Monk Monk and Charlotte have similar personalities and are enjoying their days together playing in their habitat.
