Belfast Zoo is celebrating a new arrival - the birth of Titi!
Titi is a Red Titi Monkey, a species that is very prominent at the zoo. Titi will join mother, Inca, and father, Aztec, who arrived from the London Zoo and Blackpool Zoo respectively. In 2011 the parents welcomed Maya. With the addition of Titi, the Zoo is now home to a total of four Red Titi Monkeys!!!
