Baby Monkey Born At Vancouver Aquarium

The Vancouver Aquarium's monkey population just got a little bigger with the recent birth of a Goeldi's monkey.

Ginger, the aquarium's female Goeldi's monkey, gave birth Sunday morning.

"Mother and baby are slowly bonding and are doing well," said Dr. Dennis Thoney, director of animal operations.

"The newborn has been nursing and the mother appears to be comfortable in her habitat with the newborn on her back. To allow mother and newborn time to bond, we will be closely monitoring but not disturbing them — as such, the sex of the newborn will not be known for another few weeks."
