Gizmo came to Jungle Friends after being retired from nicotine studies with 25 other squirrel monkeys. CNN reported their arrival with praise for all those who helped make history - this troop is the first to be retired from the FDA.

Gizmo is quite social with an intelligent, calculating look on his expressive face. He is a very friendly youngster who loves to play and wants to be everyone’s best friend. Gizmo has really been enjoying basking in the sunlight as he acclimates to his new surroundings.
