  • Background: Zoo
  • Character: Opinionated

Aliyah was born and raised in a zoo with her family troupe, who unfortunately kicked her out when she was about 2 years old. The zoo didn't have the facilities to house her separately and they wanted her to have a chance to find a new monkey companion, so arrangements were made to bring her to Jungle Friends.

Aliyah was born with abnormally short limbs, making her even smaller than your average tamarin. Luckily, this doesn't affect her ability to explore her outdoor habitat, where she loves to climb the trees and patrol the runways. She was even able to meet Phil, another golden handed tamarin who had recently lost his sister, and the two of them happily spend their days following each other around their habitat.
