Baby colobus monkey born at Saint Louis Zoo
St. Louis' population has increased by one - well, at least at the Saint Louis Zoo.
A baby colobus monkey was born on June 30. It does not have a name yet because its gender is still uncertain.
Ingrid Porton, curator of primates at the Zoo, said the baby monkey's mother, Roberta, was once thought to be post-reproductive - but with the birth of two babies since she came to the Zoo in 2010, "happily she proved this to be quite incorrect.”
You can catch a glimpse of the new baby, Roberta and the whole colobus monkey family at the Zoo. They are all now on exhibit.
