Competition Winner Names Baby Saki Monkey

Competition Winner Names Baby Saki Monkey



We are proud to announce that the winning names of baby saki monkey, born at Drusillas is Twiggy!

Over the past week Drusillas Park, East Sussex, has been running a competition to name the cheeky little monkey. The results are now in and Drusillas are proud to announce that the winning name is Twiggy!

The competition received over 1000 submissions, with lots of people eager to be in with a chance of naming the cute baby. There were some fantastic entries, with names such as Button, Acorn and Digit, to name a few!

The Drusillas’ competition brief left lots of scope for creativity but the winning entries came from Veronika Snitter who won a family of 4 ticket to Drusillas Park to visit the baby saki monkey she has named.

Veronika suggested Twiggy because his/her fingers look like twiglets and it’ll live amongst twigs up in the trees!

Head Keeper, Sophie Leadbitter commented: “We love the name picked for our little saki baby! We can wait to tell the parents Makari and Suri what their little baby is called!”

Twiggy, Makari and Suri can be found in-between the flamingos and beavers at Drusillas Park.
