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!!!
Here's what the zoo manager said:
“2013 is already proving to be an exciting year for Belfast Zoo, with the birth of our Linne’s Two-toed Sloth and now, the arrival of our Red Titi Monkey. The whole team is excited about what the new year has to bring!”
Found in South American rain forests, the Red Titi Monkey is unusual in that mates are monogamous and mate for life! In fact, the papa and mama Red Titi Monkey at the Belfast Zoo can usually be seen sitting or sleeping with their tails intertwined.
