Mowgli is a male vervet monkey who was confiscated from a private home by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and brought to the PRC in March 2021. Mowgli, at merely four weeks old at his arrival, is one of the youngest monkeys to be taken in by the sanctuary. Young Mowgli was very small and showed signs of neglect and physical abuse. He was in desperate need of intensive and proper care. The caregiving team worked around the clock to provide Mowgli with warmth, comfort, nutritious food and baby formula, an appropriate area to gain strength and coordination, and tons of engaging toys for gentle play. Little by little, we witnessed Mowgli become the monkey he was meant to be. Today, Mowgli is full of energy and always ready to play. He loves to swing, hop, climb, flip and have a monkey of a time! The only time this little guy wants to sit still is when he is being groomed by his new friend Nikki, a young female vervet monkey. We have seen many positive signs from Mowgli and Nikki during their time together. We are hopeful that they will become lifelong companions and have many happy and healthy years together. We’re so thankful that Mowgli was brought to the sanctuary where he will have the care, companionship, and love that he deserves!
