Baby news! Introducing spider monkey Toque and Brianna’s baby. 🙊🐵
Joining the spider monkey troop and Auckland Zoo whānau one week ago, it is clinging close to mum Brianna’s chest as she navigates the rainforest canopy.
This exciting arrival is our first in seven years and has only been made possible with the arrival of male Toque from @thetorontozoo who we worked closely with late last year.
As our primates keeper Jacqui says, this newest bundle is a ‘total heart-warming joy’ and we can’t wait to see the changes in our spider monkey troop as they take on new responsibilities.
Come and visit the whole troop in their rainforest habitat and enjoy a spider monkey encounter with one of our wonderful keepers.

In many ancient scriptures, it has been stated that when Lord Vishnu incarnated as Lord Rama on earth and Lord Shiva took the form of Lord Hanuman to serve Lord Rama in Treta Yuga. In puranas it is also said that Lord Shiva was in a dilemma as to in which form he must incarnate to serve his master. It was not considered good to incarnate in the same human form as Lord Rama because a human requires to cook food, seek shelter and wear clothes and ornaments. Lord Shiva, therefore decided to take a lower form of monkey who can adapt to any condition for his master without any demands.
It is known that Lord Hanuman is the 11th rudra avatar of Lord Shiva and since Lord Shiva is known as the destructor of evil, Lord Hanuman is known as the destructor of troubles (sankat mochan). As per the Valmiki Ramayana, it is said that Anjana performed intense prayers for 12 long years and pleased Lord Shiva to get the blessing for a child. Lord Hanuman is therefore, a result of Lord Shiva’s blessing. But Lord Hanuman is also known as Pavanputra or Vayuputra. There are two different notions about his birth where the Lord of Winds had a role to play - * When Anjana was praying to Lord Shiva for a child, King Dashratha of Ayodhya was performing a Putrakama Yagna to have children. After the yagna, the sacred pudding was the prasadam that was to be distributed amongst his three wives. But by some divine power, a kite snatched a part of the pudding and the wind took the kite towards Anjana in the forest she was praying in. Anjana took the pudding delivered to her by Vayudev and consumed it, due to which Lord Hanuman was born. * In another version, it is said that Anjana and Kesari prayed to Lord Shiva for a child and by Lord Shiva’s instructions, Vayudev transferred his male energy into Anjana’s womb. Hence, Lord Hanuman is known as Vayuputra and an incarnation of Lord Shiva.
Being an avatar of Lord Shiva on earth, Lord Hanuman was blessed to be immortal and he was even witnessed by many sages during the beginning of Kaliyuga. Even today, people have belief that Hanuman lives in India because there is no mention of his death in any of scriptures.! 🙏🐵✨🕉📿👁🐒🌀🙏 courtesy @the_shivshakti
