BoBo was purchased from a breeder in Tennessee by a family in Pennsylvania and was a Christmas present from Bella, a teenager, to Bryce, her teenage boyfriend. Of course, the breeder neglected to tell the family that monkeys are illegal in Pennsylvania or that BoBo was stolen from his monkey parents. Fortunately for BoBo his human family learned quickly that monkeys need to be with other monkeys and brought BoBo to Jungle Friends so he could live an "Almost Wild" life and meet other monkeys. 

BoBo began by exploring every inch of his habitat. He is very brave and doesn’t  hesitate when jumping from tree to tree, he is quite the acrobat! Although he is very humanized and interested in the carestaff, he has been eyeing Penny and Arie who live on either side of BoBo’s large habitat.
