Einstein came with 4 other squirrel monkeys from Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University. We're so happy with this trend of universities retiring monkeys to sanctuary homes. Einstein and his monkey friends have really taken to their new larger life at Jungle Friends and are enjoying the new sights, sounds and neighbors!

Einstein is very sweet, and is becoming more outgoing by the day. He even tries to steal treats from his pals Suki and Gus. He loves to be outside, especially on his perch sunbathing and watching Suki and Gus foraging.
