About Gucci

Name: Gucci

Species: Hybrid Capuchin (Cebus hybrid)

Who is she? The Trouble Maker

Special skills: Being everyone's favourite!

Gucci arrived at the Sanctuary in 2011 with two other monkeys. As is all too often the case, not much of her past is known but it is clearly evident that she was born into the UK primate pet trade as her parents belonged 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 very likely that her mother didn't receive the appropriate nutrition whilst pregnant with her. Sadly, this is very common as breeders have little knowledge about the monkeys they keep, or simply do not care enough. 

Due to having been deprived of a natural social life in her younger and impressionable years, and having likely been forcibly removed from her mother as an infant, Gucci can be an introverted and anxious character. She initially struggled to socialise with the other monkeys, but is now an integral member of our weeper capuchin group. She particularly loves new enrichment and despite her insecurities, her social skills have hugely improved and she often plays games with her friend, Chanel. She still sometimes covers up her anxiety with aggression, but Gucci is a real character at the Sanctuary and has overcome so many hardships in her life!

Primates are intelligent and sociable animals and being kept as pets is a lonely, under-stimulating existence that can lead to abnormal behaviours. These behaviours may remain with the monkeys for the rest of their lives, but with enough environmental stimulation, social company, and lots of territory space with access to branches and trees, we can help these monkeys recover and offer them a stable, stimulating, and social life at the Sanctuary.

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Our adoptions are purely symbolic, which means you will not receive any real animals in the post! Monkeys are wild animals – not domesticated pets.

By purchasing a symbolic monkey adoption, you are agreeing to our Terms and Conditions.
