All About Animals

De Brazza's Monkey Family

  • About dad, Kipawa

    Kipawa is Bomani and Johari's dad. He's quiet, shy and smart. Kipawa has been trained (using his favorite treats) to step on a scale to be weighed, hold out his arm for an examination, and even open his mouth for a tooth check!

  • About mom, Kiazi

    Kiazi is Bomani and Johari's mom. Being a mom comes naturally to Kiazi. She's very attentive and protective of her babies, especially when they're newborns. Kiazi watches their every move, and she's always ready to catch them as they practice climbing branches.

  • About Big Bro, Bomani

    Bomani is Kiazi and Kipawa's son, and big brother to Johari. He's very outgoing and brave, and he loves wrestling with his little sister. Bomani is always the first to try out new enrichment (toys or puzzles in his exhibit), and raisins are his favorite treat!

  • About little sis, Johari

    Johari is Bomani's little sister, but just because she's younger, that certainly doesn’t hold her back! She learns everything quickly just by watching and playing with her older brother. Johari has a spunky personality, and she loves playing with rubber bouncing toys.
