Meet Ricochet and Bonyai--
Dakota Zoo Director Terry Lincoln says they are actually pretty calm animals-- but when excited they make a loud noise with their throat that can be heard from a mile away.
They weigh about 35 pounds each and Lincoln says their favorite thing to do is to eat fruits, vegetables and monkey chow biscuits.
He says they also enjoy swinging on the ropes and moving at high speeds.
The species originates from the jungles of Southeast Asia but these two friends come from Florida and South Dakota.
"It took about a month to get them to this point where they get along real well with each other, had a few squabbles, but nothing serious," says Dakota Zoo Director Terry Lincoln.
Lincoln says when complete-- the new facility will be nearly 8 thousand square feet and home to seven endangered species of primates.
