It resembles a baby lamb, but the Prague Zoo’s newest resident will grow into a sleek black & white colobus monkey.
While colobus infants are born completely white, the tree-bound primates soon develop a mostly-black coat characterized by a streak of long white hair, giving them a slightly skunk-like appearance.
The young calf was born over the weekend to 13-year-old mother Lucie, who thoroughly cleaned & fed the baby shortly after birth.
Colobus monkeys are a communal species, Prague Zoo writes on their website, and within a few hours the newborn was shared with other members of the family, including its older siblings.
Zoo visitors can already observer the new family in action at the spacious tree-filled enclosure nicknamed Water World and Monkey Islands.
In 2015, the Zoo was ranked by Tripadvisor as the fourth best in the world.
