Lisa arrived at Jungle Friends along with 10 other cotton-top tamarins after the lab where they had been living shut its doors. Several days later, Lisa was the second monkey to venture outside. While she was cautious of her outdoor habitat at first, it didn’t take long for her to realize how exciting her lush, bamboo-filled new home was. She now spends most of her time outside, happily observing the world around her. She and her partner have even struck up a friendship with the pair living next to them, and the four of them can often be seen watching and talking to one another.
