Our primate keepers have selected eight monkey species to be featured in a friendly online voting competition. The champion will be featured on our social media and have the Primate House named after them for the day! Next up in our Arboreal Eight is the black-handed spider monkey vs. Guereza colobus monkey.
Spider monkeys communicate with their friends and family with whoops, whinnies, sobs, tee-hees, trills, twitters and squeaks!
Do you associate snorting with something funny? Colobus monkeys will actually let out a loud snort whenever they feel alarmed by something to alert other family members of potential dangers.
Which do you feel has the most unique vocalizations?
