Harry and Sally

The only monkeys who were waiting to move into a bigger cage were Harry and Sally, the red tails. They are not overly sociable with other monkeys so are kept separate from them. There was an empty cage where the others used to live before they moved to the new monkey enclosures. We had the floor concreted and waited 5 days for it to set, then came the day for Harry and Sally to move in. Jacques and Kahole had put lots of branches inside for them to jump around on. It was a very easy move, the small cage they both lived in fitted through to door, so they were carried inside in that and let out. Sally took a few days to settle, but Harry loved it straight away! They seem very happy now, and there are no more animals in tiny cages, yay!
