Albert: The Class Clown!

Albert is a smart, funny, and quirky monkey who turns 36 years old in July 2021. albert and shoes

After providing wonderful service to past recipients over the years, Albert came back to Boston to live at The Monkey Living Center. Like many of our monkeys, he loves playing with a variety of toys. Albert's favorite playthings are not playthings at all! He loves getting his hands on shoes.  He’ll play with shoes (as well as hats) any chance he can get. 

On somAlbert and Allisone days, he enjoys sitting on his trainer's shoulders or relaxing on the back of a chair taking it all in.  On others, he can hold a good conversation.  He's known to be quite the chatterbox!

Albert is easy to spot among his monkey friends. Just look for the monkey who is sucking on the tip of his tail!Albert sucking on his tail
