Keepers created a large treat ball for the residents of the walkthrough rainforest experience, by wiring together two flower hanging baskets to create a globe.

They then stuffed the sphere with tasty snacks including cucumber and apple, which they hoped the monkeys would gradually pull out.

But no sooner was the ball hung up in a tree; a mischievous emperor tamarin had managed to squeeze through the gaps and was sitting inside munching on all the grub!
