ALEXANDRA Park Zoo will have a blast from the past soon with the impending arrival of three tamarin monkeys. 

The three female cotton-tops will return the zoo to its monkey park days of the '50s and '60s.

"This particular species of monkey is critically endangered but we have been lucky enough to acquire them from Perth Zoo as part of the Zoo and Aquarium Association breeding program," Leon said. 

"They are called cotton-tops because of their shock of white hair. I've no doubt they will quickly become the star attractions at the Alexandra Park Zoo."

The monkey species is native to the Americas.
