After years of being kept illegally as ‘pets’, Gizmo and his friend Momo, a black tufted-ear marmoset, were confiscated. With the help of the Primate Rescue Center in Kentucky, these two marmosets found a home at Jungle Friends. Gizmo is one of the largest and most distinct marmosets; he spends his days exploring his outdoor habitat with his monkey companion. Gizmo enjoys watching and talking to his neighbors, looking for bugs, and lying out in the sun or in a hammock grooming his partner. Gizmo also has one of the best appetites of any of the marmosets, and he always looks forward to his morning grape, he is a champion eater!
