Meet Monkeys - Toby - Helping Hands - closeup of Toby's face

Toby: Bringing smiles to others!

Do you know someone that can bring a smile to your face just by their mere presence? That’s Toby! She is a sweet 36-year-old capuchin monkey that resides at the Monkey Living Center. She’s been placed successfully several times and has brought joy to many people.

One of her recipients, Michael, had these kind words to say about life with Toby around 2002:

“When I tell people about my little Toby, I tell them ‘my hands are broken but her hands work perfectly fine.’ I cannot describe our relationship by what she does for me. The intangible things are often the very most meaningful.”

Toby is currently enjoying her well-deserved retirement here at The Monkey Living Center. Alison, her trainer, describes Toby as very smart with a wonderful sense of humor. Toby loves to laugh. What is Toby’s most entertaining behavior? She enjoys taking off Alison’s socks to play with her feet and toes! In the words of Alison, “Toby is such a love!”
