A troop of baboons which kicked up a fuss when builders began work on a new home, have moved into their plush pad.
The baboons' new home is ready in time for the winter weather
The 120 baboons at Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside had to be separated from the construction workers with an electric fence.
They took objection to the removal of a tiled chicken house, which had been their home for the past 35 years.
But now work is finished, park bosses say the troop is "very happy" with a new £50,000 all-weather base.
The building, which has electricity and water, will protect the baboons in the winter weather.
They threw items at builders and became agitated when work started in July.
David Ross, the park's general manager, David Ross, said: "The work on the baboon house was scheduled for high summer when the baboons prefer to sleep outside in the trees.
"Despite this, some members of the troop got very upset and I could hear them barking and chattering all through the night.
"The problem with animals, of course, is that there's no way to get the message across to them that they'll have new deluxe accommodation within a few weeks.
"However, the baboons seem very happy with their new premises which they really will need from now on to protect them from the rain and the cold during the winter nights."
