The Reid Park Zoo welcomed the community to say hello to its newest residents over the weekend with the opening of the Temple of Tiny Monkeys. The inhabitants of the new exhibit are squirrel monkeys, which live throughout central and South America. Some of the tiniest primates in the world, squirrel monkeys are about a foot long, and have a roughly 16-inch tail when fully grown. Make sure to visit Glitter, Sparkles, Dazzle and Parker next time you’re at the zoo.
