We are pleased to introduce our newest resident at the Primate Forest at Hogle Zoo. He is a 12 year old male Francios Langur named Isaac. Isaac was born in San Diego Zoo. We have recently introduced him to our two female Hanuman langurs to create a new mixed species primate exhibit. Francois langurs have a unique look with white hair accentuating their cheeks and a peaked hairdo, they are sometimes referred to as Dr. Seuss monkeys. The species is rare in the wild and originates from China and Vietnam. The population is managed by the Langur Species Survival Plan (SSP) and they are only found in 15 zoos in North America.
