Birthday girl, Penny

Lar gibbon, Penny, is celebrating her second birthday today!

Upper Primates Keeper Steph Sawyer, said: “Penny seems to have had a growth spurt over the last few months and has really doubled in size.

“She’s now completely independent from her parents Huggy and Meo, but still enjoys her cuddles from mum, who remains very protective over her.”


Keepers will be treating Penny to an extra sprinkling of mealworms throughout the day.

If you’re on site today, listen out for their loud whooping call and join in their unique version of Happy Birthday!
