Gayle Anderson was live in Santa Ana to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Monkey at the Santa Ana Zoo. In 1952, Joseph Prentice, the founder of the Santa Ana Zoo at Prentice Park, required there be 50 monkeys on the grounds at all times. Monkey fans can visit the new Baby Howler Monkey as well as Spider Monkeys, a Pygmy Marmoset, an Emperor Tamarin and the Golden Lion Tamarins, an endangered species.
