Favorite Activity: Foraging through timothy hay

Bella is a female vervet monkey that we helped retire from the pet trade. Her caring owners knew she was getting to be too much to handle and sent her to Primates Inc where she could be well taken care of and live with other monkeys. This adorable, sweet girl is settling in wonderfully. Welcome to Primates Inc, Bella! She looks young at 18, right?
