Titi Monkey Born At Salisbury Zoo

titi monkey bornThe Salisbury Zoological Park announces its latest addition – another Titi monkey.

The keepers knew something was happening in the animal holding building of the sloth and monkey exhibit. The parents had been very secretive and protective for a couple of days over the previous weekend.

Finally, on the morning Nov. 23, zoo staff was able to see what was causing the unusual behavior. The family group was huddled close together and upon further observation, the keeper noticed what looked like an extra tail on the male monkey. As she continued watching, she saw the tiny baby monkey clinging to its dad.
