Dennett was one of 66 cotton-top tamarins lucky enough to retire to Jungle Friends after the closure of a major primate research lab. Even luckier for Dennett, he was among the first group of 20 monkeys to join our Jungle Friends Family in Munchkinland!

Dennett lived to be a very old man, but he was always among the first to go outside -- a huge feat for a monkey that had spent the first 23 years of his life inside a laboratory. He spent much of his time outside in the sun, enjoying the perks of his new life. Dennett also enjoyed the wide variety of food being presented to him for the first time, though he didn’t hesitate to complain if he came across something too strange. Dennett passed December 2016.
