So why is this exhibit called Primate Kingdom? Each primate species is designated its own ‘island’. Add to that a landscaping of trees, a surrounding moat and you get ‘castles’ in which our furry rulers dwell. Here, our primates need not be king of the jungle to rule their own kingdom!
Say hello to the L’Hoest’s Monkeys at Primate Kingdom. They are the new housemates of the black-and-white colobus monkeys.
What makes it special
In Primate Kingdom, our primates play, rest and forage on `islands’. Plantings of trees, wild grasses, gingers, palms and bamboo help recreate the primates’ natural habitat by adding lush greenery. The moats hugging islands are filled with fish, including the impressive South American arapaima. While you’re here, look out for the free-ranging Javan langurs. You might just spot their delicate facial features among the treetops!
