Animals rescued

Lagos Zoo welcomed a South American coati and a marmoset monkey who were kept captive in a private home in Holland.

The two animals arrived in Lagos on March 29 after being rescued by the Dutch animal association AAP Stitching.

Lagos Zoo is the new permanent home for the animals as it can provide all the necessary conditions to ensure their wellbeing. Both animals are expected to mate with females of their species already living in the zoo.
