Primates at the Hamilton Zoo

The Hamilton Zoo ring tailed lemur habitat has a rock pool with waterfall.

Lemurs are from Madagascar. The matriarchal species evolved in isolation, an example of founder effect.

A lemur ambles over to sit in the sun after lunch, and is joined by two others.

The chimpanzees lives in a leafy enclosure with climbing beams. Below is a top view.

There were two indoor sleeping quarters. Maybe to separate the males and females?

Platform with straw bedding connected by ropes

Maybe the yellow container with holes are for food and enrichment on rainy days.

The chimpanzees were outside. This is the winding path leading to them.

The frolicking chimps carried blankets. There were posters showing their unique facial features. Too bad they were so far away.
