Neytiri is a spider monkey who resides at Friends of Animals' Primarily Primates sanctuary in San Antonio, TX. Neytiri was unexpectedly born to parents Tina Marie and Mikey-both black spider monkeys. Neytiri was not able to nurse well enough from her mother. But through the help of volunteers, she was provided with constant care and given the proper nutrients to fully develop. Now she lives happily in the loving, enriching environment of the sanctuary amongst other primates, most of whom survived horrible situations at the hands of zoos, the pharmaceutical and entertainment industry, or the exotic pet trade.
