Merry monkeys to unwrap gifts at Lowry Park Zoo


Published:

The Lowry Park Zoo will bring some cheer to its chimps, and the rest of its primates, during the annual Presents for Primates event on Friday.

The yearly animal enrichment program begins at 11 a.m. in the zoo’s Primate World habitat, where visitors can watch the apes and monkeys make merry, and probably a mess, with their seasonal treats.

The zoo says the event is designed to encourage physical and mental activity while stimulating the senses and behaviors in the highly intelligent animals.

Admission to the zoo is $24.95 for adults, $22.95 for seniors and $19.95 for children ages 3 to 11.
