Homer arrived at Jungle Friends with 10 other cotton-top tamarins after the lab where they had previously lived shut down. It didn’t take long for Homer to adjust to his new home, especially the outdoors. While he does spend some time in his outdoor habitat, he’s particularly fond of the runway that connects his indoor and outdoor habitats. It’s the perfect spot for him to keep a close eye on the other monkeys around him! Like his namesake, Homer is also quite the little eater! At mealtime, you can always count on Homer to be waiting right at the feeder to grab whatever goodies are in his bowl.
