What is it about monkeys?  Why do we watch them move and play with such fascination?   At the Monkey house in the Lincoln Park Zoo, this particular monkey seemed just as intent on watching us as we were in watching her.


The monkey exhibits have been updated, so they are not as sad as the cat house at the zoo? The cages are large and the animals seemed to have lots of room to move around and play. There is both an indoor and outdoor section, but on the day we visited, it was way too cold for animals or people to be outside for any length of time.
