Record-Breaking Monkey Birth at Trentham

monkey birth strangefaceThe oldest Barbary macaque monkey ever known to give birth has produced a daughter at Trentham Monkey Forest in Stoke-on-Trent.

The monkey mum, known as Strangeface, is already a grandma; and is now in the record books as the oldest Barbary macaque recorded as giving birth.

"Strangeface" is so-called due to the unusual colouring on her face.

Strangeface's baby is the seventh born this season at the Monkey Forest attraction on the Trentham Estate.
