Monkey Moments

February 1, 2016

The Lunar New Year is February 8 and it's the Year of the Monkey. To celebrate, we pulled together a few gifs of our own primates monkeying around on camera at the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, and Prospect Park Zoo. Come see them live and in person to ring in the new year!
