Justin's capuchin monkey, Mally, has found a new home after spending the past few months in quarantine at a Munich, Germany, animal shelter.

In May, he was transferred to the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen. Now, he's living with his new family – six other capuchin monkeys – in a new area dubbed "Mally-bu," zoo spokeswoman Juliane Gunkel tells CNN. "He is very clever and he's the right age."

The monkey was seized by German customs officials in March when he was found on Bieber's private plane without proper documentation. Bieber was given a month to present the papers needed to get him back, but failed to do so.

Since then, Mally remained at an animal shelter – though he didn't seem want for company.

But now, he's free to monkey around as he pleases.
