About Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown came to our Sanctuary in 2005 from another sanctuary. His history is largely unknown, but we do know he was kept as a pet. As with most pet monkeys, it is most likely that he was bred for the pet trade and sold as a tiny baby. On arrival he appeared to be a healthy young monkey with lustrous fur and high energy levels, but his psychological state gives clues that his previous life was not a happy one. He often paces and twists his head when he is stressed; abnormal behaviours often seen in animals that have been kept in poor captive conditions. Thankfully, Charlie now enjoys natural, spacious enclosures and lives with friends in a social group, which help him forget his past. He has a gentle, kind character, so is often chosen to help new monkeys learn how to socialise and he just loves meeting new arrivals and teaching them how to play.
