In October, Adelaide Zoo welcomed a newborn female Mandrill to first time mother Niari.

Adelaide Zoo’s Mandrills have not bred in a number of years but first time mom Niari is doing quite well with her little one. To date no keeper assistance has been needed, which can be the case with some first time mothers.

The baby is almost two months old now and can be seen throughout the exhibit riding along with Mom, suckling, and starting to explore her surroundings. Although inquisitive she still stays close to Niari.

Oh my gosh, she is so cute! I really want to go to the zoo on my birthday in 2 weeks to see her!

I would love to know her name if she has one yet ?
