Hi! I can’t find any evidence of Artis having evolved from monkey payment. In fact, on the zoo website under the history section, it mentions that it was started as a small collection of animals, including a few exotic parrots, but no mention of monkeys anywhere.
I honestly think it’s an urban legend that someone started as a joke.
