George is one of 11 cotton-top tamarins that were brought to Jungle Friends after the lab where they had been housed closed its doors. George has been slower than some of his friends to take to the outdoors. Having spent his entire life inside though, this is perfectly understandable. George does enjoy the runway connecting his indoor and outdoor habitats, and he can often be found stretched out in the sun and watching the monkeys around him play. Indoors or out, he enjoys carefully observing whatever is going on around him, and he won’t hesitate to vocalize his opinions on whatever he sees!
