    Anyone know of any zoo with African green monkeys in the US? They may still be generalized as a vervet subspecies (Chlorocebus aethiops sabaeus).

    I don't know of any captive ones but there is a feral population in southern Florida.

    I'm sure there may be some in Caribbean collections as well. Does anyone know if Emperor Valley Zoo still has them?
