SACRAMENTO–

The Sacramento Zoo has a new monkey, after one of their Wolf’s Guenons gave birth on Saturday morning.

Zoo staff hasn’t given the infant a name yet, but it will be one of only 35 Wolf’s Guenons to be found at accredited zoos in the country, according to the Sacramento Zoo.

Both of the infant’s parents, Mimi and Eddie, came to the Sacramento Zoo last fall. The infant is Mimi’s first.

Wolf’s Guenons, also known as Wolf’s mona monkeys, are indigenous to central Africa.

You can find the monkeys at the Zoo’s Lower Monkey House exhibit for the time being. A new habitat, named Small Wonders, is being renovated.
