      The name change is the ridiculous net result of a Bern ad interim director trying to rout a former well respected zoo director. Borgori is no more exotic than the combined bonobo, gorilla and orang in the name.

      The lesser primate introductions have been somewhat downgraded as I recall. Either no colobus, mandrills or diana monkeys. I think it is now only the colobus (but not entirely sure as news does not trickle out lightly in Frankfurt)!
