We have had a busy week with monkey socializations! Our newest arrival, Ellie, has already shown great interest in Noah, who recently lost his companion. Both marmosets came to Jungle Friends as ex-pets in hopes of finding new mates at Jungle Friends! Luckily for them, they both have laid back attitudes and have already started grooming each other! Did you know many common marmosets form lasting monogamous bonds?
Lastly, a new habitat is going up! When introduced to Pooh and Emma, our current resident cockatoos, Emma unfortunately displayed aggressive dominance in the group leading to the decision of building a brand new habitat for Gabby with generous support from Gabby’s former guardian, Beth. We put the word out for another cockatoo in need, so Gabby will have a bird friend of his own to chatter and whistle at! Meanwhile, he has many human friends who sit and visit with him throughout the day. Feel free to sponsor any of our animals at http://www.junglefriends.org/samprogram.shtml so we can continue to build excellent habitats for all of our residents at Jungle Friends!
Until next time,
