Where Did the Snow Monkeys Come From?

Visitors to the zoo recently got their first glimpse of our newest residents: the troop of eight Japanese macaques, or “snow monkeys,” that have been vigorously exploring their new home at Regenstein Macaque Forest.

Meet Obu!

Thanks to your votes, we have a name for the baby snow monkey at Regenstein Macaque Forest: Obu! The three-letter choice took in 37 percent percent of the 2,197 votes, besting Osaka, Okuchi, Otsu and Obihiro respectively.

What is a Japanese Macaque?

You may know the iconic image—red-faced monkeys with fluffy hair lounging in a steamy hot spring—but do you know who Japanese macaques are, really?

A Baby Snow Monkey

Regenstein Macaque Forest, has added a new arrival to the mix—a baby snow monkey, born May 2.
