Potty is an adult female. Like most of our monkeys she was donated to Ecoparque el Fenix when she reached adolescence. Potty soon found her home within our social colony, where she made her way to be one of the top two dominant females.
Potty loves to boss other monkeys around but is a devoted and caring mother to her son Leo whom she plays with and grooms every day. When monkeys are caught in the wild for the pet trade their mother is killed. We are very relieved that Potty’s maternal instincts were strong even though she herself had never had the care of a loving mother.
