Diego is one of four cotton-top tamarins that was retired to Jungle Friends after the lab where they previously lived finished its research.

A very cautious and timid monkey, Diego was slow to explore the outdoors at first. Having never been outside before, who can blame him? With the help of his partner Yodel, Diego eventually explored his outdoor habitat. Now he enjoys watching his neighbors and the world around him from the safety of his favorite corner perch.
