Have a closer look at Tierpark Berlin’s golden-bellied capuchins. There's always something going on in the primate family of mum Obi and dad Jacko – and that's no wonder with six siblings.

Gelada Baby Boom For Germany's Tierpark Berlin

2021 was a fruitful year for the troupe of Geladas at Germany's Tierpark Berlin.


The youngest gelada was born on the 16th of November 2021.

The team confirms the gender only after some time.

The gestation period is 6 month and the mother breast-feeds the newborn for 1.5-2 years.

Geladas are the only species of primate in which the young can drink from both breasts at the same time, because the nipples are so close together.

Geladas have been kept at Tierpark Berlin since 1992.
