INMAN, SC – July 9, 2012 – Hollywild Animal Park has joyfully welcomed its first baby Snow Macaque, an Old World Monkey species native to Japan. The baby’s parents, Jeremiah and June, came to Hollywild during the winter from a private primate facility in Charleston. On Thursday, June 28th the baby was first seen by the public as he and his parents were moved from their private quarters to an indoor/outdoor habitat. He’s a boy, named Jacoby by animal staffers.
Katie McCoy, a student at High Point University, has been working with the primates and other park animals as a summer intern. She’s enjoyed getting to the know the animals’ personalities and their interactions.
“Jeremiah and June are definitely co-parenting and they are sweet together as a couple. It’s fun to watch them with their baby, especially when they’re all grooming each other,” she said.
