Mongo is in his own enclosure now, within chatting distance of four capuchin "bachelorettes." He seems to have taken a real shining to one capuchin named April, and she to him.
April's former owner used to charge money for her to sit on people's shoulders at circuses and carnivals. Both April and the owner retired a few years ago, so April was brought to Jungle Friends.
If things keep going well, Mongo will eventually be able to move into April's expansive enclosure - shared with April's friend Zaira - so he has a companion or two to nap and play with, and groom. (They won't make babies; the sanctuary's male monkeys are neutered.)
Bagnall thinks this match might just work out. April and Mongo are both extremely sweet, and are always making eyes at each other.
Plus, they've got something else in common: "April doesn't have any teeth, either," Bagnall said.
