Burt 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. 

Burt is a twin with his brother Ernie. While the two brothers may look identical, they know exactly what they like and what they don’t like. They both however have some important common interests, like back scratches, crickets, mealworms, super worms and hanging out with their favorite brother.
