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.

A Baby Elephant is Coming

Man. Baby animals melt the cockles of the hardest of hearts. (I’m not sure if that’s good for you.)
Man. Baby animals melt the cockles of the hardest of hearts. (I’m not sure if that’s good for you.)

Rosie at the Rio Grande Zoo is going to pop. She’s been with child for about two years. (Elephants are preggers for 22 to 24 months.) The baby, guaranteed to be absurdly cute, should be trundling around any day now. It could be August. It could be September.

Rosie, 16, was born at the zoo, and she’s out on exhibit now. Unless she births her calf unexpectedly, it will probably be a private affairunlike the showy display that giraffe put on.
