The Snow Monkey at Atlantis

with one comment

I remember the first time I saw the snow monkeys at Atlantis. “Snow monkeys? At an aquarium?!” It didn’t make too much sense to me. This was also at a time when Atlantis was still growing, and this was the only big exhibit outside — the only other exhibits were a “temple of doom” like building that children could explore, and a few reptiles and amphibians inside a separate, heated building.

It still doesn’t make much sense to me, but I do enjoy being able to see monkeys without having to travel very far, and I like knowing that they are very well taken care of by the staff at Atlantis.
