Alaska arrived at Jungle Friends in April 0f 2015 with 32 other cotton-tops after the lab where they’d previously lived closed its doors. Alaska already had two sisters, Lindsey and Regina, who had come to Jungle Friends, and his brother Sir William arrived at the same time as him. With family close by, Alaska quickly adjusted to life at Jungle Friends. He and Juno can see the road form their habitat, and they often watch people as they walk by, following them as far as they can in their runway, then going back in their habitat to hunt bugs and wrestle in the banana leaves.
