Paradise Country welcome troop of marmosets

Paradise Country welcome troop of marmosets
December 3, 2019

Paradise Country, Village Roadshow Theme Park’s Australian homestead on the Gold Coast Queensland, has welcomed a troop of marmosets ahead of the summer school holidays.

The marmosets will reside in a specially-designed habitat located in the heart of the park, at the Farmhouse Restaurant.

Guests will be able to experience an enchanting encounter with the cheeky monkeys and watch on as they explore, feast and interact within their new exhibit.

Paradise Country Curator of Wildlife, Deane Jones said the marmosets are an exciting addition to the animal family advising “We are incredibly excited to welcome the marmosets to Paradise Country and we can’t wait for our guests to watch as they get up to their mischievous antics in their all new state-of-the-art habitat.

“They are very inquisitive animals with each having their own individual personality and we are looking forward to seeing their group dynamic come to life right here at the park.

“Marmosets are the smallest members of the new world monkey family and grow to about 250 grams with their diet consisting of insects, fruits and vegetables.

“With over 60% of the world’s primate species currently threatened with extinction, the marmosets will join Paradise Country’s Save A Mate Program as ambassadors for their wild counterparts and help raise awareness, funds and conservation efforts.”

The best way to see the marmosets is with a Village Roadshow One Pass which provides unlimited access to Paradise Country, Sea World, Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast for 12 months.
