Squirrel Monkeys spend most of their lives in trees, and move from tree to tree by leaping. Their bodies produce a musky secretion that is spread throughout their fur and tail. Squirrel Monkeys use the scent to mark territory or leave a trail for others in their troop to follow.
Since they are so nimble, Squirrel Monkeys make almost no noise as they jump from tree to tree.
Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.Taylor F.

Lots of great exhibits and animals to see! Fun gift shop and learning center.Stephanie N.
The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.Bill T.
