Mango: Mango Man!

Mango is one of the older monkeys here at The Monkey Living Center—he’s 38. He’s been placed two times, and his first placement lasted 15 years! Mango has a special bond with his placement trainer, Natalie, because they are the same age—they were born just three months apart!

They love spending quiet moments together in the playroom. He loves to lounge with his whole body stretched out. He’ll give Natalie his hand or foot to hold while he relaxes. Even though he loves to relax, he also loves to play and flirt with other monkeys, or with Natalie.

She’ll tell you that he gives the best hugs! As for bath time, Mango doesn’t love it, but he tolerates it well. He stands up straight in the tub and holds onto the faucet while Natalie scrubs him. His favorite part is eating the bubbles!
