Angolan Colobus Monkeys Debut at Zoo Atlanta

George and Kinshasa, two Angolan colobus monkeys, began cruising the treetops of their new home in Zoo Atlanta’s Ford African Rain Forest during Independence Day weekend. The recent arrivals, George from Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Kinshasa from Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, will be part of an exciting mixed-species habitat introducing Zoo guests to the diverse lifestyles and behaviors of African primates.

Angolan colobus monkeys are visually stunning animals, easily recognized by their black faces framed by long locks of snow-white hair. Native to forests throughout much of central Africa, the species is not currently listed as endangered.

Other great incentives includes an offer to “Beat the Heat,” a discount that allows visitors who arrive before 11 a.m. to enjoy $5 off general admission per guest. The promotion is valid on Saturdays and Sundays through July 26.
