But, she says, new monkeys Cody and Pugsley are younger males that should fit well with Darwin's increasing energy levels. "He's a typical teenager now, very loud and swinging and running and jumping all the time," Liepa said. The board had trouble raising money to buy the land and the monkeys from the couple who wanted out after a divorce. But two new owners who wish to remain anonymous came forward to buy the sanctuary last summer. Liepa said the new enclosures are only temporary as the sanctuary is in the final stages of designing a brand new facility made of shipping containers — pieced together like Lego blocks — that they hope to begin in the spring if fundraising efforts go well. Liepa said the new facility will be built to house 40 monkeys, with the ability to expand further to hold upwards of 100 monkeys, all of which are former pets, laboratory animals and those that are part of Ontario's underground exotic pet trade. ——— Follow @liamdevlincasey on Twitter
