Orinoco - Squirrel Monkey
Arriving in 1997, Orinoco was one of the tiniest residents at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary. He weighed a mere 4 ounces and needed a great deal of care. Having been rejected by his mother at UC Davis, Orinoco arrived in an incubator and needed constant attention.
Named after one of the longest rivers in South America, Orinoco is now an adult. He has gained a bulked up, muscular body; and despite his small weight is an impressive presence within the troop.
