About Jimmy & Elsa

Jimmy & Elsa joined CPZ in 2017 after being confiscated by USFWS. These little monkeys are quite the hit with zoo's staff and visitors due to their active lifestyle. They enjoy any and all form of enrichment and are not afraid to mess with their cage mates - even though they are all much larger.
