  • Background: Ex-Pet
  • Character: Confident

Lizzy arrived at the sanctuary when she was only two years old. Lizzy's guardian told us that after playing with Lizzy, she was covered in bruises from her rough play. She realized early on that Lizzy needed to be with other monkeys who could enjoy her rough and tumble play.

The spider monkeys play and play and then play some more. It warms our hearts to watch Lizzy chasing after the other monkeys, and rolling around on the ground wrestling. Lizzy can be seen running the length of the habitat right at the top, 24’ high, she is very brave and confident.
