      Even though its not particularly landscaped the high Climbing Poles and structures to me make it look really good.

      This one is more extensive but not as natural as the others as it has far less natural vegeatation growing in it (and no really large trees) There are some younger trees in the centre of the enclosure which already look quite damaged by the Colobus.

      As the most extensive of the open-topped exhibits, I think other species would be better suited to it - a large group of mandrill could look really good in here, for example.

      I agree. Its not best suited to Colobus, more to a semi-terrestrial species. There is a pair of Geladas in here too, but they don't seem to be doing anything about getting more.

      I was aware of the Geladas, but have always thought that a baboon which lived in a more forested habitat would work better seeing as there are so many climbing structures. These are, of course, minor complaints for an otherwise excellent exhibit.
