1. This is Mimi, a 5-year-old Wolf’s Guenon monkey that lives at the Sacramento Zoo.
3. Because of how rare Wolf’s Guenons are, very little is known about how they raise their young.
4. Mimi and Eddie, the father, both belong to a species of monkey native to central Africa.
5. Wolf’s Guenons typically live in dense forest, so a birth in captivity is a terrific aid to zookeepers studying the species.
6. Congratulations Mimi!
