There is one section of the park where (for an additional fee) you can actually go into the monkey area with a guide (they have food), have food in your hand, and the monkeys will climb down your arm, sit on your shoulder and eat the food. You cannot actually pet them (they ARE wild after all), but they will interact with you for some time.
The rest of the park has little baskets on chains that drop down from the top of the cage (remember YOU are in a 'cage" while the monkeys roam free) and if you put food in the basket, the monkeys will pull up the chain and get the food out. Other habitats have pipes that you can drop food into and have it reach the monkeys.
