When it is inhospitably cold outside, we like to cuddle up to a warm stove or the heating.
The same applies to the animal world. In a zoo enclosure in southern Germany we were therefore allowed to equip the outside area of the howler monkeys with heating plates in such a way that parts of the area were warmed up and the animals had a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Some heating plates are also placed directly in front of the panes so that visitors have a better view of the animals. Who wouldn't settle there?
Soon we will also probably be able to report about our contribution to the breeding of baby sea lions, so stay tuned…
