ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Chehaw zookeepers released a picture Tuesday of a baby black and white Colobus monkey born at the park. They discovered the baby during a routine morning check July 5th then took the mom and infant off exhibit to make sure they were doing well. They're now back with the rest of their family for visitors to see.

The baby is white but will gradually change to black and white coloring as it grows.  Zookeepers don't know the gender of the monkey yet.  They say its older brother and sister are showing interest in interacting withe and holding their new sibling.

This is the third successful birth of a Colobus monkey at Chehaw.
