Meet Sophia and Raf
Come along and meet our two Cotton Top Tamarin monkeys, Raf and Sophia!
The Cotton-top Tamarin, which was once found in a number of Central American countries, is now found only in the rainforests of North Western Colombia. There are more than 20 species of Tamarin (and their close relatives Marmosets) with much variety in fur and colouration, especially on the head and face.
See them up close at our 12pm daily cotton-top encounter – our keepers will be interacting with them and will also share a few interesting facts about these incredible creatures.

You will be guided around their enclosure alongside one of our experienced keepers and even get the chance to hand feed them!
