chimp bornA new chimpanzee has been born at Albuquerque's Rio Grande Zoo.

The chimp was born Feb. 5.

That brings the total number of chimpanzees at the zoo to eleven.

The baby chimp's gender isn't known yet.

The chimp's mother is a 30-year-old named Elaine. The father is a 19-year-old chimp named Alf.

It's the first chimpanzee birth at the Albuquerque zoo since the zoo opened its Adventure Africa exhibit in 2004.
