Adopt Bala’s Group
[add_to_cart item=”04″ showprice=”no” quantity=”1″ text=”Adopt” ]
Bala is a Preuss’ guenon monkey, and in fact is the only known male Pruess’ guenon in captive care in the world. The Pruess’ guenon only occurs at high elevations in a tiny corner of eastern Nigeria and western Cameroon. Bala gets his name from the village of Balagete which is situated in this sub-montane area. He lives with a male of another species for company – red-eared guenon Anthony. Anthony was chosen from a number of red-eared guenons as the best companion for our Bala. With us since 1997, Bala is now acting the part of an elder statesman, which suits him well considering his appearance resembles that of an older man with a white beard. As he has grown with age he has also become grumpier, loving nothing more than to shake the mesh of his enclosure to impress passing visitors! Anthony and he, however, have a calm relationship and find peace in each other’s company. Adopt Balagete’s group and help us care for them and keep up with the regular enclosure repairs required due to Balagete’s moody behaviour!
