Baby Monkey Threatens To Break Internet With Cuteness

(CBS) – Brookfield Zoo is reporting the birth of a black-crested mangabey, but all you probably need to know is he’s a kind of monkey and preposterously cute.

The male, Zingo, was born July 4 to mangabey parents Kiwi (mother) and Videll (father). At birth, the baby monkey has light-colored face and hands and looks very different from adult mangabeys, which are darker, zoo officials say.

The family may be spotted in the Brookfield Zoo’s Tropic World: Africa as the mangabeys are rotated in, zoo officials said in a news release issued Friday.
