He was born on September 7, 2022, got his name on January 7 and is now the 7th baby for Prague Zoo’s female Talula (his dad is named Benji).
Meet Geoffroy’s spider monkey Tiko! The little male was named by naturalist and Government Commissioner for Biodiversity Negotiations doc. RNDr. Ladislav Miko, Ph.D.
Only three zoos in Europe have this Mexican subspecies of spider monkey in care. Prague Zoo currently breeds the largest group in Europe and has kept them since 2005.
You can visit Tiko in the Zoo’s Monkey Islands exhibition complex.
