North American River Otter

Treetops and Riverbeds

Primates abound in our Treetops and Riverbeds exhibit! Hear the haunting calls of our white-cheeked gibbon family and gaze at the majestic colobus monkeys in their treetop perch. Be sure to see our pair of North American river otters because they love attention almost as much as they love to eat fish! These button-nosed cuties will enchant you with their boundless energy as they gracefully glide in and out of their pond.
