Pip came to Jungle Friends with his brother, Zeke, in May 2012. The brothers were the third generation descending from an original group of six capuchins that lived in a psychology laboratory during the 1970s. While they were in the lab, this group of monkeys was lucky enough to live together in a social group, with the same lead researcher who studied them for their behavior, problem-solving skills, and tool use. The researcher was ready to retire and she took her time finding just the right home for these monkeys - Jungle Friends was lucky enough to have room for Pip and his brother.
