    I have come across a fascinating article about the neotropical primates from Cologne Zoo now in the Koenig Museum in Bonn.

    This is especially interesting for those of us who remember when Cologne Zoo had a fine collection of uakaris and saki monkeys, as we probably saw many of the specimens detailed in this article when they were living in the zoo.

    Hi Tim, thanks for sharing. I have known this for some time and read some of the background papers to the Neotropical Koelner Zoo primates in their collection.

    I might go and check up some time soon.
