Ramu's Story

His plight was reported to us and John immediately went to rescue him. He was found sitting on the ground chained to a length of bamboo. He was very thin and existed on mainly sweets and chocolate from the familys children.Through boredom he had become withdrawn and had lost all interest in life. Although he took some time to adjust it was not long before he was learning how to play and loved the swimming pool. Unfortunately he, like other male monkeys when they reach about 4 years of age, has become too aggressive to be taken out but he still enjoys life and has two doting females, Sasha and Hilary, to keep him company
