Shabani is a 19-year-old male monkey, weighing 180 kg and is the most loved by Japanese people because … so handsome. Therefore, the majority of visitors to Shabani in the zoo are women. They also nicknamed Shabani as Ikemen (slang for the handsome guy).
The beast started to gain national popularity in June 2015, when its pictures appeared on Twitter and Instagram of many tourists. It quickly won the sympathy of everyone.
