So this is snow!

Small primates in Monkey Tails had their first experience of snow thanks to keepers’ enrichment ideas.

Section Leader, Lower Primates, Nicola Wright, and her team brought buckets of snow inside the walkthrough tropical rainforest experience and hid pieces of fruit inside for the cheeky creatures to find.

Nicola said: “The primates inside Monkey Tails obviously didn’t get to experience the snow, so we decided to bring some of it inside for them to play with.

“It was great to see them with it. Some sucked it, others dug out the fruit straight away, while a few waited for the snow to melt before diving in for the treats afterwards.”
