Vervet cage with enrichment

The 3 monkeys were busy foraging in the wood-chip flooring and playing with the frozen drink in plastic bottle . Also strings of hanging CD's and a child's toy .

      I'd like to see a system of branches higher up so they could use the upper space better, but apart from that I agree this is perfectly acceptable for a 'rescue-centre' type enclosure.

      I agree, not too bad an enclosure. I'm a bit confused about what function the hanging CD's are meant to have though...they wouldn't be strong enough to hold their weight so couldn't be used to climb on.

      Had a look at the pictures of these on the Centre's website to try to work out which species they are . Using the illustrations in HMW , page 670 , they look closest to Grivet Monkey , Chlorocebus aethiops , with light tops of hands , dark face , and general colouration . They have a female and her two daughters .
