To celebrate the opening of Colobus Crossing, Zoo staff invited the public to vote on names for the three colobus babies currently on exhibit. Name suggestions were selected by Zoo staff and were narrowed down to a few favorites. Thanks to all who voted to help us choose names for our three babies.
We’d like to officially introduce, in order from oldest to youngest: Jabari (courageous), Makalo (wonder, surprise), and Dakari (joy)!
All names are of African origin, since colobus monkeys are native to Central Africa.
Stop by the Zoo to see them frolicking around in their new outdoor habitat. Click here to read more about Colobus Crossing.
