Baby Howler Monkey at the Zoo

Today is Cute Baby Animal Monday. (Don’t miss Disfigured Old Things With Open Sores Tuesday.)

Fifi, a 14-year-old howler monkey with an unfortunate name, had a baby on Jan. 16 at the Rio Grande Zoo. Zoologists still haven’t determined the sex. You can see monkey mom and monkey child between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. near the pheasant exhibit when the weather’s good. And you thought nothing could be more heart-warming than the baby elephant.

From the news release:

Native to Central America, howler monkeys get their name from the loud calls they make each morning to announce their location to other groups. Newborn howlers will stay with their mother for about a year and either remain in the group or leave to find a new one once they reach maturity. Howlers are golden in color when they’re born. Adult males have black fur; adult females keep the golden color.
