Alas arrived at Jungle Friends along with 19 other cotton-top tamarins. They were the first group out of 66 monkeys being retired to the sanctuary after the closure of a major primate research lab. Though Alas was one of the last monkeys to go exploring outside, she’s slowly figured out what an interesting world is waiting for her in her outdoor habitat. Alas will always run out to the runway leading outside where she finds her favorite treats -- bugs.
