An open-air cage for Japanese macaques has been reconstructed at the Moscow Zoo. Work began in May and ended in August. During this time, all existing structures were updated in the aviary and new ones were added.
In the interior, the specialists installed additional sources of drinking water and updated shelves for rest.
In the center of the enclosure there is a wooden climbing structure made of thick larch logs, between them there are air paths from fire hoses. In the far left corner of the structure hangs a wide hammock, in which animals can lie comfortably, facing the sun. In the lower part of the enclosure, three benches made of logs were made for the same purpose.
On the left side of the aviary is a vast area with pebbles, bark and scraps of wood; this is a play area. It is surrounded by a low wall so that the rain does not wash away the bark. There is a swimming pool next to the play area.
Now a group of five Japanese macaques lives in the zoo: the male Orange, the female Cherry and Cherry, as well as their children Mandarin and Grape. Immediately upon returning to the enclosure, they were wary, mostly kept inside, but soon began to re-develop the territory.
The zoo is also completing the construction of a complex of premises for the zoological service. “Zoologist’s House”, it will be located on the top floor of the Pinniped pavilion. Also, an additional entrance is being built in the zoo and a pedestrian bridge across Bolshaya Gruzinskaya Street is being reconstructed, connecting the old territory with the new one.
