A BRAND new Bristol attraction will provide plenty of opportunity for monkeying around this summer.The Monkey Jungle, featuring Meet the Lemurs, is an impressive forest experience where primates will mingle with visitors to Bristol Zoo.All the sights and smells of the forest will be combined with living roofs, creeping plants and natural daylight. Monkeys will scale branches and scamper across leaf-littered floors.The new attraction will introduce visitors to the monkeys and lemurs of Asia, Africa and South America. Howler monkeys, lion tail macaques, red ruffed and ring-tailed lemurs and De Brazza's monkeys will be able to cross the Gorilla Island moat, using a log bridge to meet up with their bigger cousins.The Monkey Jungle will open on June 23 and tickets to the zoo, priced £7-11, are available from 01179 747365.
