DULUTH, MN-- Duluth's Lake Superior Zoo has a newborn monkey ready to greet the public.

Táami is a four-week-old black crested mangabey monkey.

Táami was born in May to mother Kiwi and is the newest member of her troop of four.

Zookeepers say they are thrilled to welcome the new addition to the family.

"It is very exciting. Like I said, there are so few mangabeys in captivity right now, and we are looking to grow their numbers, so this is a very big deal not just for our facility but for the whole species," said primate keeper Bethany Wright.

Keepers say both mother and baby Táami are doing well.

They expect Táami to begin to adventure away from mom in the next two weeks.
