Sylvia arrived at Jungle Friends with 32 other cotton-top tamarins after the lab where they’d lived their entire lives closed its doors. She lives with an older male cotton-top, Poppi, and they are adorable together! Sylvia is vibrant and loves hopping around the habitat, and Poppi loves sitting back and watching her play… when she lets him! Sylvia brings out the inner child in Poppi, and she patiently coaxes him to play with her. Her bubbly personality is contagious and can put a smile on anyone who passes.
