Zookeeper Report – Monkeys, Monkeys, Monkeys!

Babies are being born!

This Grivet was born on January 15, 2013 and more babies are being born at Southwick’s Zoo all the time!  We’ve recently had a Schmidt’s Guenon born on March 21, 2013 and a Ring Tailed Lemur on March 10th.  Grivets are very active monkeys and moms are know to “share” their babies.  Females will care for each other’s young, called allomothering.  Here at Southwick’s Zoo, many times you will see siblings pull each other’s tail, jumping around, playing chase and of course, annoying their moms!  They are such a fun and active group and we are happy to share them with you.
