Apes everywhere are likely celebrating their new digs planned for Las Vegas. Reportedly, there will be an ape exhibit containing six apes in a new Las Vegas habitat in the next few months.
Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is also probably going Ape Ga-Ga (vs. Lady Gaga, who is also coming to Las Vegas shortly) over the announcement- highly endangered apes are his favorite animals.
Representatives from the San Diego Zoo were in Las Vegas last week at the Las Vegas Zoo and announced a donation of $15,000 for the improvement of the ape and desert tortoise exhibits.
Zoo officials are asking the public for donations to help build the new exhibit, which will provide a more natural-looking habitat for the animals. Each will cost $50,000.
