SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Take a look at the latest addition to the Dickerson Park Zoo.

The zoo welcomed this black and white Colobus monkey yesterday morning to first tie mother Raksha.

The sex of the baby isn’t known yet, but both baby and mom are doing great.

While they’re on exhibit, momma is being protective so she’s hiding a lot. But the zoo says it’s worth it if you’re patient.

Colobus monkeys are native to central and east Africa.

And as you can see here, babies are born with white fur that changes color as they age.
