Capuchins (Digital, 1 Year)
Davidson and Baby (black capped capuchin/cebus appella and Weeper capuchin/cebus olivaceus)
Davidson (dob. est. 2001) and Baby (dob. est. 1993 ) live together in a large enclosure in the woodlands.
After living for many years in a small zoo, Davidson found himself surplus to requirements and in need of a new home. A lovely monkey, full of character and inquisitiveness, Davidson was the perfect partner for our female capuchin Gizzy who he lived with for many years, before she sadly passed away.
He is an extremely intelligent monkey, full of inquisitiveness, and likes to be kept busy and active. He will use large rocks to bash any tough nut or enrichment item that is placed in his enclosure and will persevere until the end result is achieved.
In 2021, a new companion was found, and Baby arrived at Lakeview. They are now inseparable.
After living in a private house for the majority of his life, with no primate companionship or suitable stimulation or access to the outside, Baby was transferred to Lakeview to live with his first primate companion, Davidson. Although Baby had never had the opportunity to live like a monkey or be with others of his own kind, he took to his new life with gusto, even at his ripe old age. The two boys have become inseparable with Davidson becoming protective over his new enclosure mate.
Baby’s character has really shone through, and his resilience and adaptability have shown what an incredible monkey he is.
