Baby mandrill born at Paignton zoo

Paignton Zoo's newest member

This is the tiny newborn mandrill born at Paignton zoo. The zoo says this baby primate, originally from the rain forests of West Africa, is another important contribution to the European Endangered species programme which Paignton Zoo is part of.

A single youngster is born after a gestation of five to six months and the troop at the zoo now numbers seven.
