Birth of a De Brazza’s monkey

One of our two females De Brazza’s monkeys (Cercopithecus neglectus) recently gave birth to a baby. The 1-month-old newborn is doing well and has started to eat solid food, though it is still suckling. Among cercopithecidae species, weaning is usually completed around one-year-old. The baby hasn’t been named yet as its sex hasn’t been confirmed with certainty by the keepers.
