White Faced Saki

This little guy is a White Faced Saki. In the wild, they can be found in the lower canopy of the South American Rain Forest.  When these monkeys are full grown, they can reach up to an average of 12-16″ tall. Their tails can measure out to be about the same length as their bodies. The average lifespan of a White Faced Saki is about 15 years. 

Comet and Zeke will greet you as you walk into the entrance of the zoo. They live with Amaya the sloth and Rollo the armadillo. They are brothers and sometimes you can catch them playing or fighting in their exhibit. 

Stop in at the Red River Zoo and say “hello” to these friendly brothers. They can’t wait to see you!
