5/22/2011 Mandrill enclosure

Mandrill is shared with red tail guenon and wolf's guenon. Some of the smaller primates are also rotated to the chimpanzee enclosure next door. There maybe another species that share/rotated through this exibit.

      Smaller primates rotated to chimp enclosure?! That doesn't seem right...

      I talk to a couple of keepers one time thinking that one had managed to jump the barrier between the 2 inclosures and was told that they were rotating them for stimulation. I thought it was strange too because the chimps are pretty sensitive and can be territorial. Some chimps even hunt small monkeys. I don't think they would do it just that one day though. But I had questioned the keepers that were near by about it, maybe they were monitoring the situation at the time.

      I remember that when I went, the Chimps were in an enclosure by themselves, and the Mandrills were nearby. There were Wolf's Guenons in the Mandrill exhibit, but I believe they can go to another nearby exhibit with Red-Tail Guenons. Perhaps this is what you were thinking of?:p

      You knot what your right. After reading yout post I went and rummaged about for an old map I had. Your right Chimps are to the left of the mandrills and Red-tail Guenons on the right and I think they rotate the Wolf's Guenons and possibly the red-tail guenon to depending on the day. But I had asked a keeper about it because one was with the mandrills and the sigh for the species was on the other exhibit. There is just a rock formation wall that separates them with some water and wire.
