Rare Titi Monkey Born At Lincoln Park Zoo

A rare Bolivian gray titi monkey was born this week at Lincoln Park Zoo, officials said today.

Born Monday, October 17, and is one of only approximately 50 individuals of this species in accredited zoos.

The new arrival, yet to be sexed or named, was born Monday as the eighth offspring for mother Delasol and father Ocala.

Mom and baby both appear to be doing well, zoo officials said. There are only about 50 individuals of this species in accredited zoos.

“We are delighted,” said Curator of Primates Maureen Leahy in a news release. “Delasol is the oldest Bolivian gray titi monkey on record to have given birth, and the newborn’s father and older siblings are already pitching in.”
