We can’t wait to welcome you back to Monkey Haven when we open tomorrow (Friday 4 December) – and look who’s here to meet you! We are delighted to introduce you to the cutest little Capuchin we’ve ever seen!
Baby Pumpkin arrived on Halloween, giving the Keepers a bit of a trick and a treat. We had suspected that Malou was pregnant – as she was bit off colour and starting to put on weight – but she had been given a contraceptive implant, along with all the other female Capuchins, so we thought ‘surely not…?’
However it surely was. When we went to check on her, it was quite a shock to see a little furry monkey clinging to her back. It wasn’t what any of us planned – but then this year hasn’t exactly gone to plan for any of us, has it..?
Keeper Lilymae Millichamp says: “Our little lockdown baby has given us all lots of joy already. Malou is a wonderful mum, Peppino is a protective Dad and the rest of the tribe dote on on the new arrival. Come and meet them as soon as you can!”
We’re open again for winter weekends with a special seasonal rate of £8 per person on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays (10-3pm).
- We are open December 4th, 5th, 6th; 11th, 12th, 13th; 18th, 19th, 20th
- December 27th – 3rd January
A warm welcome awaits with tasty treats in our tea room and pressies and stocking fillers in the shop. Our Keepers and rescued animals would love to see you! Book your tickets in advance now!
