Smokey 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. 

Smokey is the first responder for enrichment items and all things fun. As activity director, he initiates most of the play with the three other sweet, shy boys in this group. He usually gets the ball rolling by animating his bestie, Bandit.
