      Do they have some part of that monkey cage where they can get some full sun from above?

      It looks worse then melbournes.

      Dark cages surrounded by bright green foliage represents quite a contrast.

      @ Mark, I don't think they get any full sun in to those cages. They are very dark, much more so than they even appear in the photos

      i was at alma park zoo now about 4 years ago and the exhibits have no changed. i spoke to a keeper and they said, they arent pure rhesus monkys anyway they are ex-lab monkeys that were rescued from experiments they should be lucky to live in here! but the keeper said that all these cages were getting upgraded soon - yeah when????????????????

      It sounds like they are up-grading this area for them

      really baboons will breed in almost any sort of captive living conditions though, so its not saying much
