The PECO Primate Reserve, #Philadelphiazoo, Philadelphia PA

As we meander down the snow banked entrance to the primate reserve, we look forward to exploring the heated primate house.  Here we will meet the ring tailed lemurs of Madagascar, the white handed gibbons of Asia, and the critically endangered western lowland gorilla from Africa.  These animals prefer the warmth of their indoor habitats to roaming outside in the overhead zoo trails on a cold day.  Before we enter the primate reserve, we observe the smaller overhead trail where the small, cold loving Red Panda explores the outdoor trails today.
