Chet arrived at Jungle Friends in April of 2015 along with 32 other cotton-top tamarins after the lab where they’d previously lived closed its doors. Chet lives with Gretel, another cotton-top who has a deformity in her hand, and he has taken it upon himself to care for her… not that she needs the help! Chet will often double back if he is running through the runway too quickly and Gretel can’t keep up, and he even lets her take first pick at breakfast! He is a sweet little monkey who loves watching spiders build webs while basking in the sun in his runway.
