  • Character: Curious

Leiah, a common marmoset, arrived at Jungle Friends after being surrendered by her former guardian upon the death of Leiah's partner, a male marmoset named Luke. Her guardian knew that Leiah would need another monkey friend, and while it took some time, she eventually found a new partner with whom to enjoy her almost wild life! 

Leiah is a very opinionated and feisty marmoset who's quick to share her disapproval with a chatter or threat face. She especially loves keeping up with all the drama amongst her neighbors and can often be seen darting from one side of her habitat to the other, trying to keep an eye on everybody around her.
