About Elvis

Name: Elvis

Species: Capuchin

Who is he? The Distinguished Gentleman

Special skills: Doing impressive power displays by bouncing furiously on horizontal beams

Elvis is the patriarch of the Sanctuary’s first and only natural family group of capuchins. He and his family arrived at our Sanctuary in 2012 from an animal care college when it became apparent that they were not suitable animals on which to practice ‘hands on’ animal care. 

Despite his size, Elvis is a gentle giant in many ways. Although he lives in his own social group, he also loves to chat to his monkey neighbours. He is the father of Banjo and Roccita and loves spending time teaching them all about the ways of being a capuchin! For many years Elvis was the alpha of his family group, but he has recently taken a step back and allowed his son, Banjo, more influence and control within the group! He now enjoys spending more time with his family and less time getting involved in monkey politics! But he is still always on hand to reassure and guide Banjo as he learns everything he needs to know about being in charge of a large family!

Adopting Elvis means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Elvis the best life possible. Your adoption also enables Wild Futures to continue its vital work campaigning for an end to the primate pet trade in the UK and abroad.

PLEASE NOTE: Our adoptions are purely symbolic and are a great way to support our sanctuary, where the monkeys shown on our website (who have been rescued from traumatic lives as peoples pets) have a home for life.
