05-28-2001 ATTENTION SOUTH JERSEY RESIDENTS:
The animal kngdom has two beautful alfas. To name a mandrill is refered to by stud book keeper Cathleen Cox as a "House Name".
Private owner, Burton Sipp has not named his Mandrills and did not object to Neftali naming one of his alfas after himself.
Private owners do not by law have to name there Mandrills, they only have to report there date of birth and then a number is assighned to identefy the baboon.
when you visit the zoo make sure you mention you wan t to see the alfa Mandrill called Neftali.
Owner Burton Sipp has informed Neftali that he has plans to build a new Mandrill exibit.
Lets let Burton Sipp know we care by emailing him or visiting his zoo soon.
