New Chimpanzee Born At Dallas Zoo

dallas chimp bornThe Dallas Zoo has a new resident, a baby chimpanzee born at the zoo last weekend.

The baby chimp, which has not been named, was born last Sunday morning to parents Ramona and KC at the Zoo's Chimpanzee Forest exhibit.

The Dallas Zoo says they have closed the chimpanzee exhibit for a brief period while the other chimps become accustomed to the new guest.

The zoo says vets say the baby appears to be healthy, but they are waiting until Ramona and the baby have had more time to bond before they will examine it to make sure, and to determine if it's a boy or girl.

The birth makes eight chimpanzees at the zoo.
