Uno, Chiquita and Cosmo, the titi monkeys at Atascadero’s Charles Paddock Zoo, are now in a new $10,000 exhibit funded by the Atascadero Rotary Club.

The monkeys moved into their new digs Friday.

On Thursday, they snuggled in a 24-hour holding area while their new space received its final touches.

Titi monkeys are an endangered species that come from Colombia, Brazil, Peru and north Paraguay. They have long, soft fur in red, brown, gray and black.
