Lee Richardson Zoo Welcomes Baby Monkey

KSCB News - February 21, 2012 8:50 am

A southwest Kansas zoo has a new baby
monkey.
The Garden City Telegram reports the baby Goeldi’s monkey was
born Sunday at the Lee Richardson Zoo. It’s too early to tell the
baby’s gender.
Goeldi’s monkeys are small and native to South America. In the
wild, they are threatened by deforestation and poaching.
The baby’s parents average just 14 to 18 ounces in size. And zoo
officials say the tiny baby is barely visible as it clings to its
mother’s upper back.
The first-time mother will care for the baby on her own for the
first two weeks before allowing the father to help.
The family is on view in the Marie Osterbuhr Aviary.
