Monkey Profile #11

Shy Shelly!

Writer Mark Twain once said, "Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been." We think Shelly would agree with Mr. Twain! Shelly is a happy and shy 31-year-old monkey living at The Monkey College. She is super ticklish. She usually rolls over laughing if her Helping Hands trainer, Brittany, touches her stomach! How cute!Shy Shelly! Brittany says that one of her favorite things about Shelly is her distinctive wrinkles around her face.

SnacktimeWhat girl doesn't enjoy some pampering? Shelly enjoys her weekly bath ritual.  She loves to be wrapped in a soft towel and then brushed. Brittany has noticed on more than one occasion that Shelly enjoys flirting in the mirror with herself!

Shelly's favorite snack? She loves walnuts and takes her time savoring each bite. Her favorite meal is probably her apple snack. Playtime is the best! Shelly loves any toys that click and make noise. She's also quite the little artist. She has a flair for drawing.
