Meet our glorious group of grazing geladas
Found only in the wild in the Ethiopian highlands, geladas are accustomed to heights and live up to 4,000m above sea level. They are the last surviving species of grass-eating primates and spend a lot of time grazing. They’re known as ‘shuffle-feeders’ as they often don’t even stand up to eat, instead they shuffle along on their bottoms. You can find our troop of geladas living next door to the Sulawesi crested black macaques.
