For the pet counterpart, see Pet Monkey.


The Monkey is a non-member land animal that was first released on July 17, 2010. They were one of the six original animals released into Animal Jam during Beta Testing.

Default Appearance

Monkeys have blue-gray fur with cream-pink skin on its hands, feet, ears, underside, and face. They have full slanted ebony eyes. Monkeys have large front hands and smaller back feet, arched posture, long thin curled tail, small lower body, and a wide, rectangular head with big, round ears.


Monkeys left Animal Jam on April 12, 2012; the reason was to raise the awareness of the endangered species list. Throughout the extent of time, the monkey spirit stone was still able to be used. Monkeys can now be purchased by all Jammers for 1,000 Gems. They were released in Play Wild in 2015.

The Conservation Museum formerly had a donation box at the right-hand side of the entrance for the purposes of bringing endangered animals to Jamaa. Animal Jam Head Quarters used this box to bring the monkeys back and present new animals.

On August 30, Jammers finished donating over 1,000,000 Gems in the donation box. As a result, Animal Jam Headquarters brought monkeys back, along with the Monkey pet and the Monkeys Only Party, featuring a jungle-like den.
