Newborn potoo in Cincinnati Zoo

Quiet, slow and shy potoo spend their time asleep in the nooks high in the trees, and at night regale delicious fruit and tree sap. Only three of the North American zoo exhibit Pott, and only Cincinnati Zoo has successfully spread this rare primate. In some parts of Africa potoo called Softly-Softly, but if a tiny little animal will threaten predators, he pierces his enemies sharp spine at the neck. Potto - distant relatives of apes and humans.
