Kilroy arrived at Jungle Friends after he and his friend Herbie were retired from cocaine research.

After living alone in small cages in the laboratory, Kilroy and Herbie immediately took to their larger enclosures, particularly the outdoor habitats. It was simply a joy to see Kilroy and his friend finally feel the wind and the sun and climb on trees and plants --instead of stainless steel and plastic. Kilroy is very expressive both vocally and non-vocally. He will run up to one of his neighbors, display what seems to be a surprised expression, and screech a short but loud greeting. He also spends much time exploring his surroundings and playing with his friend Herbie.
