Authorities saw Penny listed on Craigslist in Kentucky to be sold into the exotic pet trade for $600. Pet monkeys are illegal in Kentucky - Penny was confiscated. Luckily, Penny was only two years old when she arrived at Jungle Friends, she will have plenty of time to enjoy her "Almost Wild" life! 

We hope to socialize Penny with Kiefer, who arrived just one month before Penny. The two are in side by side habitats and are always following each other from their outdoors into the indoor and then back outside. They love to play so we are hoping for a good match!
