Monkeys At Great Plains Zoo Love Stuffed Koala


Jackie Friedrichs’ 4-year-old son Elliot has become obsessed with the Koala bears at the Great Plains Zoo. 

So much that he’s been visiting the zoo every week this summer to see Moki and Burra on loan from the San Diego Zoo

He even got a stuff animal named Burra (after the real Koala). On Friday, Elliot brought his stuffed animal into the monkey exhibit at the zoo in Sioux Falls, SD. 

“Those crazy little monkeys became completely enthralled. For almost 15 minutes they’d crawl down and across the window trying to touch it,” Jackie said. 

The koalas are on display through Labor Day at the Great Plains Zoo.
