Drusillas Park

Maarten the Colobus Monkey!

Zoo Keepers at Drusillas Park in East Sussex are celebrating after Maarten the colobus monkey finally finds true love through an adoption at the park!

As one of the only animals at the park without an adopter, keepers put the 6-year-old Colobus monkey in the local lonely hearts column to find him a perfect match for Valentine’s Day.

Jack Parker, aged 10, was the first out of many enquiries to adopt Maarten after seeing his sad face on the TV.
