MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The oldest male snow monkey in North America celebrated his birthday Wednesday at the Minnesota Zoo.
The 29-year-old Nikko lives at the Apple Valley zoo. Above is video of Nikko opening his birthday present.
Zoo officials say Nikko has lived almost twice as long as a typical male snow money because of his laid-back personality, which is not typical of male monkeys.
Just three other living snow monkeys in the world are older than Nikko, and they’re all female.
