A baby colobus monkey has been born at London Zoo.

Standing out against mum Sophia’s raven hair, two-week-old colobus monkey Anvil has a completely white coat which will eventually darken as she gets older.

It is named after the small bone in the inner ear, “Anvil” is joining family members Maxilla , Bones and Radius who, following the Zoo’s tradition, were also christened after parts of the skeleton.
