Prague Zoo welcomes new baby Mantled Guereza monkey

The as-yet unnamed baby monkey, a Mantled Guereza, was born on Monday (February 24) to parents Lucie and Katanga.

Visitors to the zoo can easily recognise the newborn due to its white fur. The fur will become grey in one month and will later turn black and white in colour.

Lucie introduced the baby to the rest of the family, who took it in turns to hold and hug him and also so that members of the group could practice how to care for their own future offspring.
