Monkey Finds Love in New Home
At the Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary in Gainesville, Leiah the marmoset has found a new home — and love. The primate sanctuary provides homes for 12 monkey species. Leiah, a 4-year-old common marmoset and former pet from South Florida, became the sanctuary’s newest resident Saturday. Her former owners could no longer take care of Leiah after the death of her partner, Luke, said Lindsey Jean, one of the facility’s caretakers.
