SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A baby Colobus monkey, rejected its mother, is growing and getting stronger by the day.  We update his progress at Dickerson Park Zoo.

Zoo spokesperson Melinda Arnold says the baby has been hand-raised by one of the zookeepers.  He has transitioned to living at the Zoo in the building where the rest of the Colobus monkeys are.  He will eventually move back in with the rest of the population.

The baby is not on public display at the zoo yet, but you can see him in the video above.
