Walter 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. 

Walter is pleasant and mild mannered with big, earnest looking eyes. Him and his buddy Hank both prefer to observe neighbors Smokey and Bandit demonstrate the games they propose before trying anything on their own.
