He came to a zoo in Minneapolis, Minn., in 2001.    Since then, he has been one of the dominant males. Zoo employees believe his laid-back personality has helped him survive almost twice as long as a typical male.    There are only three other living snow monkeys in the world older than Nikko.  </p></span></div>
