Animals at Riverside Zoo receive yearly inspection

Posted: Updated:

It's that time of the year again.

At least for some animals at the Riverside Zoo.

During the zoo's off season there is more to be done than just feeding the animals.

This year spider monkeys, foxes and chimpanzees were given health check ups.

The exams ensured all animals were healthy and doing well.

Zoo Director Peter Halliday says it's important all the animals are checked.

"Animals are just like us. They do need to have their health monitored and maintained, just like it's a really good idea to go to the doctor for a check–up on a regular basis so that the doctor can check."

Halliday also says there were no problems with any of the animals tested.
