Curious Squirrel Monkey
Free ranging monkeys only in Apenheul
Apenheul Primate Park is unique. There is no other zoo in the world where you will find so many primates roaming freely among the visitors: more than 200 of them! The monkeys are very friendly and harmless for you and your children, and they will show themselves at close range. However, to enjoy them most, you need to adhere to a few simple house rules.

Squirrel monkeys grow to 25 to 35 cm, plus a 35 to 42 cm tail. Male squirrel monkeys weigh 750 to 1100 g. Females weigh 500 to 750 g.
The squirrel monkeys are the New World monkeys of the genus Saimiri. They are the only genus in the subfamily Saimirinae. The name of the genus Saimiri is of Tupi origin (sai-mirim or gai-mbirin < sai ‘monkey’ and mirim ‘small’), and was also used as an English name by early researchers.
