CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Lazy L Safari Park will feature some new primates this summer.
In addition to the Ring-tailed Lemurs, Diana Monkeys, Patas Monkeys, and Ruffed Lemurs (black & white) now call Monkey Row home.
The Diana Monkey is an Old World Monkey found in West Africa.
Patas Monkeys are a ground-dwelling monkey distributed over semi-arid areas of West Africa and into East Africa.
Black & White Ruffed Lemurs are primates and the largest of the lemurs.
Zoo Director Vicki Lantz says they try to bring a new exhibit each year. They got the monkeys on loan from other private zoos.
In addition to the new Monkey Row, the alligators got a new pool added to their enclosure.
Lazy L Safari Park is a walk-thru zoo featuring animals from antelope to zebras.
Visitors can get up close and personal with more than 40 different species of exotic animals.
