Billy arrived at Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary in January 2012. The details of his past are still being investigated, but we know that he was born in a European zoo from which he was sold into the primate pet trade and smuggled into the UK. Billy is a very quick learner. He is very brave and very friendly. Not self pitying, when told off he doesn't sulk but patiently waits to be able to play again. Good at occupying himself when alone. Billy still has a lot to learn about being a monkey and is always looking for adult reassurance from the older monkeys. He is learning fast and is quickly accepted by the others.
