Houdini 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. 

Houdini has a cool, studious gaze. He likes figuring things out. He used to be clever with puzzles and fasteners when he was younger and then passed his skills on to his friend Sprocket and his gang who now love unhooking their toys and hammocks.
