Felidae provides a home to two vervet monkeys, Melvin and Gordon. During tours visitors can easily spot the difference between these boys as Gordon is noticeably smaller than Melvin. Both vervets were rescued, although for different reasons.
Gordon was captured by trappers who killed his mom for food. He was then sold to people and made his way to Felidae center, where he found a permanent home!
Melvin was rescued from his previous home due to neglect and mistreatment. He was kept in a township and people would kick him and throw rocks at him. He now lives happily with Gordon! While both monkeys are still shy around people, Melvin enjoys sitting at the edge of his enclosure and watching everything that happens during tours. Both boys love receiving snacks provided by Felidae during the tour as well!
