The Quiz: South Carolina’s Morgan Island is home to a population of what?

Snow leopards
Rhesus monkeys
African elephants
Emperor penguins

Explanation : Morgan Island, off the coast of South Carolina, is home to a unique population of 4,000 rhesus monkeys. The monkeys were relocated to the island in 1979, after the Herpes B virus threatened the monkey population at Puerto Rico’s Caribbean Primate Research Center. The population grew, and the federally protected island has served as their home ever since. However, unless you’re a permitted researcher, the island isn’t open to visitors.

Correct Answer: Rhesus monkeys
