Clydette, arrived at the sanctuary with her companion, Goldie Hawn, another spider monkey. These girls joined our Jungle Friends family when their guardian was in the middle of a divorce.

Since her arrival, Clydette has truly come out of her shell. Once subordinate to Goldie, Clydette now seems to enjoy instigating certain situations, especially getting first dibs on food. She excitedly welcomes breakfast with her trademark "helicopter tail." Most of Clydette’s days are spent brachiating through her habitat, foraging and playing, only to pause for naptime cuddling close to one of her monkey friends.
