Booger was bred in captivity for research. He arrived at Jungle Friends with seven other capuchins. These boys were used in iron-toxicity studies and spent years in a metal cage – all alone. When the study was over, all of the monkeys came to Jungle Friends to live out their retirement in an "Almost Wild" life. Booger was very dominant, although shy, and the most gentle when he was given special treats by his caregivers. See more about the Ironmen here!
