About Gucci

Gucci arrived at the sanctuary in 2011 with friends Kirsty and Kwango. It is evident that she was born into a private breeder ‘facility’ somewhere in the UK, as her parents belong to different species of capuchins that would never interbreed in the wild. Gucci looks a little different because she has a cleft lip and palate, meaning it is likely that her mother didn't receive the appropriate nutrition whilst pregnant with her. Due to having been deprived of a natural social life in her younger and impressionable years, Gucci can be an introverted character. She initially struggled to socialise with the other monkeys, but is now a solid member of our weeper and hybrid group! She particularly loves new toys and despite, her insecurities, her social skills have improved and she often plays games with her friend, Chanel. She has also managed to steal the heart of the Sanctuary’s other hybrid capuchin, Mr Monkey, who can’t take his eyes off her! Gucci is a real character at the sanctuary and has overcome many hardships in her life! 

Adopting Gucci means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Gucci 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.
