The Santa Ana Zoo has a bunch of new animals including the aptly named bald eagle, Spirit, who "omes to Santa Ana from a rehabilitation facility in Alaska due to a wing injury that precluded her from being released back into the wild," according to a zoo statement. Last month, the zoo's monkey population increased to 52 when twin red-handed tamarin monkeys were born. The two will be available this weekend at the Zoo’s 57th Birthday Party event. Also: the zoo is preparing for the arrival of more animals including a pair of pretty pink roseate spoonbills for the walk-through bird aviary, a sloth, and a giant Amazonian centipede, supposedly one of the largest centipedes in the world.
