Crystal, who plays a veterinarian’s “pet” on the NBC show Animal Practice, is a capuchin monkey who has been exploited in a number of commercials, TV shows, and movies. But what do you think she would rather be doing than performing silly tricks in front of a camera?

1. Snoozing

2. Shakin’ her tail feathers

3. Splashing around monkey playing in water

4. Getting a piggyback ride

5. Playing hide and seek monkey hiding in tree

6. Noshing on fruit monkey eating

7. Exploring her inner yogi

8. Climbing on trees

9. Training for the Capuch-a-lympics

10. Having a BFF she can relate to—not a Hollywood producer or trainer but another monkey she can hang out with and spend time playing, climbing, and foraging with.

Tell NBC executives that you disapprove of the use of wild animals such as Crystal in entertainment, and urge NBC to cancel Animal Practice!

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I'm crazy weirdo who seems sweet but that can flip like a switch if you get on my bad side.
