Regina, named after her first sponsor, arrived at Jungle Friends along with 19 other cotton-top tamarins. They were the first group out of 66 monkeys retired to the sanctuary after the closure of the major primate research lab where she’d lived her entire life.

Regina and her partner had never been outside before, but once she was given access to her outdoor habitat, Regina was quick to go check it out! Regina spends a lot of time sitting in the sun on her favorite perch outside, where she has a perfect view of the monkeys around her. She enjoys it out there so much, in fact, that she’s usually the first one out in the morning and the last one to come inside to bed.
