Pepsi 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.

Pepsi loves to play hard and wrestle. He’s always ready to engage in any game. He and his playmates sometimes form a whirling fur ball that crashes and slams into everything in its path. The boys never lose their tempers, and a five minute skirmish will be followed by a five minute cuddle nap.
