NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Talk about a bouncing baby boy!
The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo debuted the first gelada baboon born in the U.S. in 13 years.
“This is an exciting birth for the Bronx Zoo and our visitors,” said WCS Executive Vice President Jim Breheny. “To watch the young gelada race around the hillside, jumping and interacting with the adults is an experience not to be missed. It is an inspiring sight that transports you to the East African highlands.”
The baby gelada weighed a little more than a pound at birth and will grow to about 65 pounds.
The baby will be made visible to the public day-by-day depending on the temperature and weather, the zoo announced.
