Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Welcomes Newborn Monkey

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Friday, February 3, welcomed a new baby, a 3.5-ounce white-faced saki monkey.

The baby, of undetermined gender, is currently a fixture on mom, 12-year-old Lopez. The infant grabs hold of her fur and can ride on just about any part of her, hanging from back, belly or side, for example.

There are 138 white-faced sakis at 43 institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

The birth occurred on exhibit in the Primate Cat & Aquatics Building. That means mom, dad and baby are all on display.
