Did anyone else just kind of assume Auckland Zoo was all shit? I had for years, I have no idea why, but me and the boy paid it a visit recently and it was choice. There was a shortage of meerkats cos’ they needed to put their feet up after child-rearing, and the tigers were MIA, but monkeys are the main attraction for me anyway so I wasn’t too bothered. Bearing that in mind, I’m pretty excited to see the worlds tiniest monkeys coming into the zoo, a pair of pygmy marmosets. They can fit in the palm of your hand. Cute! We get to peep em from Saturday.
