Andrew is a Crab-Eating Macaque, now about ten years old, who came to us from Pennsylvania. Like most of our resident monkeys, Andrew was kept as an illegal pet, but in his case, he was very well taken care of. Andrew's elderly owner was truly devoted to him and had built a very spacious enclosure for him in the family garage, where he spent lots of time with him.
But when the gentleman passed away, Andrew was left quite alone with no attention. The family had no time for him, and the man's daughter called Popcorn Park to see if we might have room. We found Andrew to be a very quiet and gentle fellow, perhaps due to the kindness he'd known from his owner.
He's adapted well to his situation here at the Zoo, and seems quite happy. We've just made him our latest addition to the Wildlife Club where he is now available for sponsorship. We hope you'll come visit Andrew when you next come to Popcorn Park ... but you don't have to wait that long to let him know you care. Will you sponsor Andrew?
