• Species: Bolivian Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis)
  • Gender: Male

  • Arrival: December 20, 2017
  • Background: Research
  • Character: Friendly

Stumpy 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. Stumpy and his monkey friends have really taken to their new larger life at Jungle Friends and are  enjoying the new sights, sounds and neighbors!

Stumpy is a sweet old man who is found mostly out in his habitat. He likes to talk to his neighbor frequently and typically starts up quite the conversation. His favorite foods are grapes, raisins and bananas.
