The Monkey Tails juveniles, now aged three months, were born on the same day to Dibley and Stumpy and are now starting to leave their mums and independently explore their new surroundings.

Senior Curator, Derek Grove, said: “They’re both growing quickly and Dobby is already off Dibley’s back, while Gizmo is a little lazier and still prefers Stumpy carrying him everywhere, although he’s really a bit too big for her to do that now.

“Visitors love spotting the two boys when they walk through Monkey Tails.”
