      Is the habitat for vervet monkeys or leopards?

      @pachyderm pro based on our previous knowledge in regards to the site plan, I would say Vervet Monkeys.

      That large artificial tree looks made for a leopard to recline on.

      The reason I think it is for leopard is that the zoo renderings all show a cat stretched out on a log like the one that protrudes from that artificial tree. They also specifically talk about a leopard lounging on a branch.

      While at the zoo I assumed this exhibit was for the leopard as well. After referencing the latest overhead plans I could find, I came to the basic assumption that it intended for the vervet monkeys. Could have changed though.

      Having visited the zoo yesterday and the day before, I can confirm this exhibit now houses vervet monkeys. This is the end of the trail that is currently open. Above this (behind a temporary barricade) is a large walk-in aviary under construction and around the bend (according to the schematics) will be the leopard exhibit. A keeper at Asian Leopards says it will be similar to the current leopard exhibits. Which specific leopards will be moved is still undecided.
