Golden-headed Lion Tamarin/Geoffrey's Marmoset Walk-through Exhibit

      Would be absolutely fantastic to see them in such a large environment. But what's stopping them from simply waltzing out over the bridge?
    • FunkyGibbon
      @Ashanti This is not so uncommon in Europe. I believe that when the primates are first introduced the bridge is electrified and visitors kept out long enough for the inhabitants to learn to stay away from the bridge and then the current is switched off and the exhibit opened. Happy to be corrected if this isn't the case.

      @FunkyGibbon: That's the idea, but Planckendael's callitrichids can't actually access the bridge anymore. They're confined in the treetops by boards visible on the right of this photo. Still a very cool display.

      @FunkyGibbon Thank you for the clarification! I've never seen this design implemented down here in Australia, I'd like to experience it someday.

      @Giant Panda This is actually only half true: the Geoffrey's marmosets are indeed confined to the tree-tops, but the Golden-headed lion tamarins were free-roaming today.
