Saki home swop!

DZG’s four Saki monkeys, Dakota and Dej, Rio and Splodge have swopped homes!


Dakota and her beau, Dej, pictured above, have relocated from Monkey Tails to the Small Primate House at the top of the zoo site.

While Dej’s brother, Rio has returned to Monkey Tails with his new buddy, Splodge, where keepers will gradually introduce them to the rest of the indoor walkthrough’s residents over the next few weeks.

Upper Primates Section Leader, Pat Stevens, said: “Dakota and Dej seem to have adjusted to their new surroundings quite quickly and I’m sure Rio will enjoy getting up to mischief with Monkey Tails’ squirrel monkeys once again.”
