APPLE VALLEY -- One of the newest additions at the Minnesota Zoo is captivating both children and adults.
"We had a pleasant surprise Friday morning when we found a baby De Brazza monkey in holding with the mom," said Tom Ness, the Tropics Trail Supervisor at the MN Zoo.
The baby monkey is the second born to the Zoo's pair of adult De Brazza monkeys.
"For the first three to six months of life the baby clings to mom and nurses, and completely dependent on mom for everything," added Ness.
In about four to five years the De Brazza monkey will become an adult.
