At Monkey Haven: Oh boy, we've got our hands full with this lot! These cheeky macaques love larking around - you wouldn't believe the fun that they can have with a plastic cup. And give them a towel - and they will happily play 'ghosts' for hours. One of the posse, Hobo, was found in [...]

Lar Gibbons

At Monkey Haven:Β We've got two Star Gibbons - oops, Lar Gibbons - and that'sΒ Somer and her mother Rasmaya. You'll probably hear them before you see them! These showgirls will try and grab your attention with their melodic singing and acrobatic feats. If you walk away, they'll try and lure you back by singing even louder! [...]
