Mubi the drill monkey suffered the most traumatizing time right after her birth at the Port Lympne Animal Park near Canterbury, Kent.
Her mama, Yola, immediately rejected the sickly baby and kept attacking her constantly. Zookeeper Simon Jeffrey eventually rescued the poor Mubi before the attacks took her life.
Knowing that Mubi was banished by her own kind, Simon decided to take the terrified baby home for the night.
When Simon’s Jack Russell puppies, Iain and Daisy, spotted the pitiful baby monkey, they graciously accepted her as a part of the “pack” and began playing with her!
Over the next few weeks, Mubi blossomed into a charming and confident little girl. She would cling to Simon while he finished his duties at the zoo throughout the day.
When she returned home, she would excitedly run to the puppies and resort to her “monkey antics” around the house!
Mubi and her puppy siblings are around 2 months old now, and their personalities have beautifully blended together.
In this video, Simon explains the intricacies of this baby monkey’s special care routine, and the possibility of her being released into the wild.
However, the best part of the video is Mubi’s hilarious couch adventure with her puppy siblings!
