Tiki was just one year old when he arrived at the sanctuary, and the stress of his new living situation was very hard on him at first. Poor Tiki cried constantly and ate nothing but applesauce. Once he was given access to the outdoors, however, he turned into an entirely different monkey! He was quick to explore his new home and finally learn what it was to be a monkey.

Now Tiki is a spunky, lively marmoset who truly enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. He makes sure to greet every visitor with a loud call and a suspicious look, and then he settles onto his favorite perch to keep a close eye on them. When he’s not carefully guarding his section of Munchkinland, he can be found sprawled out in a warm patch of sun taking a nap.
