Getting To Know Them Better

Jethro was born at a breeding facility in Miami. He is the older brother of Harry and BamBam. He was worked in entertainment before being retired to Central Florida. He arrived at the sanctuary in 2017 along with Harry, Bailey, Keagan, and Archie.

Today he spends his days lounging in his hammock or exploring the aerial trailways, and Sandra is never far away
