Roughly five jillion monkeys and a mangabey selfie

For today's #DailyZoo: monkeys!

User 'devilstower' found a great clip of "roughly five jillion monkeys" travelling on the canopy floor and 'Boleyn' found this very sweet young mangabey front and center in front of one of our cameras and hashtagged it #selfie.

West African Chimpanzees Honey & Sugar cracking some nuts

Today's #DailyZoo video is of a chimpanzee mother cracking some nuts in West Africa and her infant watching her (and eating a few himself). Chimp&See users have named the mom Honey and the infant Sugar (who we think is a male) after identifying them in separate video sequences!

The super sweet video can be seen here: http://talk.chimpandsee.org/#/subjects/ACP0002wbj and the whole series of videos of Honey & Sugar can be seen here: http://talk.chimpandsee.org/#/collections/CCPL00003i
