Congratulations to the Cotton-Top Tamarin! 

March is bananas at the Zoo! Join us in celebrating the Saint Louis Zoo’s Monkey Mania! Our primate keepers have selected eight monkey species to be featured in a friendly online voting competition. Twice a week, starting March 16, you will have a chance to vote at Facebook.com/stlzoo for your favorite species (based on animal traits) to help them advance from the Arboreal Eight, through the Forest Four and on to the Final round. The champion will be featured on our social media and have the Primate House named after them for the day!
