The Bronx Zoo’s World of Birds mixed species exhibit is now home to a bouncy baby Bolivian grey titi monkey born this past April. The family of titis reside in the exhibit mimicking a South American rainforest populated with golden lion tamarins and grey-winged trumpeters, a bird species which opportunistically dines on fruit dropped by primates. Bolivian grey titi monkeys are native to central and northern Bolivia with their range extending into Brazil and feast on fruits, leaves and insects.
