Don Knotts was captured in the rainforest as a youngster, stolen from his family and the freedom of his native home. Don Knotts was exported to the US where he was sold into iron toxicity research where he spent nearly two decades, in the laboratory – all alone in a small cage. Fortunately, after the studies ended, Don Knotts and eight other capuchins were retired to Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. Don Knotts was paired with a sweet female and the two spent lots of time together, grooming and playing. Don Knotts was always very interested in his surroundings and loved to explore.
