Hey, Hey, They're the Monkeys 

The zoo gives a whole day to its favorite poop-hurlers.

If it was up to us, every day would be Primate Awareness Day at the zoo. There isn’t a funnier or more awesome group of creatures in the entire animal kingdom. And the zoo has plenty of programs to prove it at today’s inaugural outing, with gorillas, monkeys, and orangutans getting in on the action. The lineup includes a visit by the zoo’s vet -- who gives a checkup to a mommy monkey and her baby -- and an Opposable-Thumb Challenge, where participants futilely attempt everyday tasks without using the world’s most taken-for-granted digit. Visitors can also try on a gorilla-sized shirt, watch primates look for food hidden in puzzles, and check out a baby monkey that swims. Awww!
