Wonders of Wildlife announced the addition of new animals to their exhibits.
For the first time, primates are being added to the exhibits. Marmoset monkeys, native to Brazil and parts of the Amazon rainforest, are now calling Wonders of Wildlife home. Marmosets are highly active during the day.
Staff believe that a new addition is bound to be a fan favorite. A two-toed sloth is now part of the exhibit, hanging from tree branches. Also in the trees will be a blue-and-gold macaw.
