Alexandria Zoo celebrates birth of howler monkey
Tuesday, January 18, 2022
Alexandria Zoo celebrated its first birth of the new year. Black howler monkeys, Cody and Lola, welcomed their second offspring on Wednesday, January 12. Females generally give birth every two years, resulting in one offspring.
To allow mom and baby to bond without any added stressors, the animal care team is just observing for now. At this stage, we look for nursing and grip strength, which are indicators of a healthy baby. Both mom and baby are doing well.
