TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) -  Known as the Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay, he has garnered national attention on newscasts, websites and newspapers, becoming a celebrity of sorts garnering legions of curious spectators and nearly 79,000 Facebook fans. For over a year now, the seemingly uncatchable young Rhesus Macaque has traveled across tree tops and through backyards spanning three counties and over 400 square miles.

In light of this local phenomenon, GTE Federal Credit Union has launched an online "Mystery Monkey Tour Contest" that will present their Facebook fans with a series of clues for a chance to win a $1,500 cash prize. At the close of the contest, GTE FCU will make a donation to the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary.
