Lingering taste of Hallowe’en

dzg_monkey_pumpkin_seeds_6_webGhosties may have vanished overnight, but there’s a lingering taste of Hallowe’en in the Small Primate House thanks to leftover pumpkins seeds which have been dried by keepers and handed out as snacks to cheeky little monkeys!

Team leader, Pat Stevens, pictured, said: “It was a shame to throw away all the seeds as small primates really love them, so I’ve gone round the site collecting them from various sections and now have a treats stash for the next few weeks!”   The seeds are being shared among Saki monkeys, emperor tamarins and goeldis monkeys.   dzg_monkey_pumpkin_seeds_6_web
