Who's who at Brent Lodge Park animal centre
Ben and Sam - South American capuchin monkeys
Ages: 22 and 21
Ben and Sam are brother and sister. They were born at Brent Lodge Park and you will often see them climbing on their new climbing frame. Ben is much shyer than his sister and even though he is older, he gets pushed around quite a lot!
They are fed on monkey pellets mixed with water and Ribena, chicken, eggs, cheese, mealworm, crickets, locust, fruit and vegetables. Their favourite foods are grapes, nuts and insects.
Sam is very bossy and likes to think that she is the boss of the enclosure. She will often chase Ben around and take his food.
Sam can be very cross and at other times she is very sweet and will give Ben a cuddle and groom him gently.
Mo the marmoset
Mo lives at Brent Lodge with two other male common marmosets.
They eat monkey pellets, fish, eggs, cheese, mealworm, crickets, locust, fruit, vegetables, and gum.
Mo is very good natured and less bossy than the other two.
All three marmosets came from the Animal Reception Centre at Heathrow after they were seized by customs authorities.
Wilbur, Twiglet and Marlon the Kune Kune pigs
The Kune Kune pigs are settling in well in their new enclosure and are almost fully grown.
They are fed on grass and pig nuts and spend most of their time digging for roots.
The pigs are one of the most active animals we have and you can often see them digging in their paddock.
