Poppit 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.

Poppit is very friendly and playful. He’s a rough and tumbling youngster who never gets enough of the game. He and Sprocket engage each other by swiping the fidget toys and initiating a game of chase.
