Kyla - a capuchin monkey

Good things come in small packages!

Don’t let her size fool you. Kyla is quite the self-assured and independent little lady. 

Kyla is a 37-year-old post-service capuchin monkey living at the Monkey Living Center.

She enjoys spending her time with Alison and other monkeys, especially her BFFs Lucy and Sadie. Alison knows that Kyla is a bit particular with toys. If she could, Kyla would tell you that she’d much prefer interactive toys (buttons, levels, or movable parts) over toys with faces or ones that squeak! She’s very playful and loves to be tickled.

You won’t have to tell her twice to eat her veggies! Favorite greens? Brussels sprouts and cucumbers. Delicious! Like many of our monkeys, Kyla loves healthy snacks. 

She’s one happy camper when you give her some nuts, oatmeal, or peanut butter. Kyla’s idea of a perfect afternoon would be lying in a quiet sunny spot in one of our playrooms and eating her snack. Or, if is it cold out, curling up under a towel on Alison’s lap with a heating pad.
