Whatever you do, don’t make any jokes about Brookfield Zoo’s newest gorilla monkeying around — gorillas are apes, not monkeys, and probably hate puns. 18-year-old western lowland gorilla Koola gave birth to a female at Brookfield Zoo on Monday, November 4th. Both mother and baby seem healthy and happy.
Chicago Zoological Society announced that an Angolan colobus monkey had been born at Brookfield Zoo. Both the baby and its mother seem happy and healthy and can be found in the Tropic World: Africa exhibit. Visitors to the exhibit will not only see the new infant and its mother, Olivia, but other females Chaka, and Tina, along with Sash, the father.
Mauyak, the Shedd’s female beluga, gave birth to a healthy calf about 2 a.m. Monday.
