After a fire last year destroyed a barn and killed a dozen birds, Brights Zoo has built a brand new exhibit that was built from the ground up.
The zoo opened the new “South America” exhibit last night.
The building houses more than four dozen animals from the continent including monkeys and sloths.
Zoo officials had been working since March to get the new exhibit open. Zoo officials call the South America building their biggest project to date, and also a way to get people to the zoo even in bad weather.
