Oregon Zoo Welcomes New Monkeys

(Portland, OR) -- There are two new faces at the Oregon Zoo. Red-tailed monkeys Indi and Chichi are in the Africa Treetops habitat. They came to Portland from the Louisville Zoo. Red-tailed monkeys have unique facial patterns, which helps them recognize each other in large groups and they have pouches in their mouth large enough to hold as much food as fits in their stomach. Red-tailed monkeys aren't endangered, but they face ongoing threats due to deforestation, hunting and human encroachment.
