Polly 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. Polly wasn’t the first in her family to come to Jungle Friends- her father Dennett and sister Jane had come in June of 2014, and her nephew Flynn was among the cotton-tops that arrived with her. Polly was one of the first monkeys to go outside after she arrived, and now she spends as much time as possible in her outdoor habitat. She loves running up and down the runway between her indoor and outdoor habitats, which lets her watch plenty of her neighbors and even race with some of them as they go about their business
