Rare Monkey Born At San Antonio Zoo

drink, drink, buh-wah-ha-ha.

For the first time in San Antonio Zoo's history, a Francois Lemer monkey was born.

The birth, which occurred over the weekend, is significant because the monkey is an endangered species, said John Gramieri, of the San Antonio Zoo.

Gramieri said there are only 73 Francois Lemer monkeys in North America.

The baby monkey hasn't been named yet because its protective mother is preventing zoo keepers from checking its gender.

I can't stand it any more! It is a Francois Langur not a Lemur!
