ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The wild animal park at Chehaw welcomed a new addition to their group. A family of three monkeys is now a family of four.

Wendy, their female Colobus monkey, gave birth to a baby only ten days ago.        

Workers say the playful primates are a park favorite. 

"The baby Colobus monkeys are always fun," said Chehaw Director of Animal Care Ben Roberts They're cute as a baby just because of the family dynamics that you see with them."

The monkeys are part of a species protection group at the zoo.        

Wendy also gave birth to another baby about a year ago.
