Overweight primate dubbed ‘Godzilla’ losing weight at fat camp


Godzilla, the morbidly obese primate discovered at a market in Bangkok has started to shed the weight. When the 3-year-old pudgy primate first arrived at a wildlife center in Cachoengsao, Thailand, he weighed in at over 41lbs. But thanks to a strict diet, the monkey has already shed 4lbs since he arrived at ‘fat camp’ on March 26. Godzilla now has daily walks and a diet that includes live crickets, bird worms, dill, and lettuce. Staff at the wildlife center hope to get Godzilla’s weight down to 22lbs before releasing him back to the wild.
