  • Arrival: November 14, 2018

  • Character: Neat

Hank 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. 

Hank is a very tidy looking monkey who is always ready to greet people with a clean face and hands. Once he is over some initial shyness, he is a very straightforward and gregarious.  Hank seems to especially enjoy the new enrichment being offered to him. Bamboo is his favorite so far.
