Jaws 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.

Jaws is very complex - he is nice, but definitely introverted. His only friend is Moby. He has had trouble overcoming his infamous youth when he was known as a biter. He was one of the smaller monkeys as a youngster who made up for his size with biting. He has since learned better manners, and is slowly regaining the trust of the rest of the troop.
