Although native to tropical areas including Southern and Southwest Asia, many of these pythons have been released throughout Florida, which poses a danger to the ecosystem.

The Indianapolis Zoo has had Guinea baboons — an Old World monkey species — in its animal collection for many years, dating back to the "old" Zoo on the city's east side that opened in 1964 and then moved to White River State Park in 1988.
These primates are animated, social, sometimes quarrelsome, occasionally loud, and always fascinating to watch.
Chats are included with regular Zoo admission and availability varies seasonally, so ask for a schedule at the front gate.
