O'Leary: "O" what a monkey!

O’Leary is an active, friendly, monkey who turns 34 years old in October 2021. He is quite smart; so smart in fact that he is always trying to outsmart his trainer!  Nothing like cuddling in a warm blanket!

O’Leary (fondly known as "O" or "O man") is by far the MOST charismatic of all the monkeys at The Monkey Living Center. He’s quite the attention-seeker. It doesn't matter if he’s playing with other trainers or monkeys—he loves being the center of attention!

Mirror, Mirror

Many of our monkeys, as you may know, enjoy playing with toys. O’Leary prefers toys with mirrors. Sometimes we will catch him flirting with himself in the mirror! He also enjoys spending quiet moments wrapped up in warm blankets and towels.

His most endearing behavior? When he’s relaxed, he will sit in the same position with his tail curled up in a half heart shape-his signature pose!Have a Heart!
