Mandrill Kesi’s new baby knows how to get around, hanging onto mom as she moves around their habitat. Kesi gave birth to her baby boy this week—and he is the first mandrill born at the San Diego Zoo in over 14 years! This is the first baby for Kesi and male mandrill Jasper. So far, animal care staff say, they are doing exceptionally well as new parents—and mom is being very attentive to the baby’s nursing needs. Guests can visit the Zoo’s three mandrills on Monkey Trail in Lost Forest. They share an exhibit with guenons, including spot-nosed monkeys and Wolf’s monkeys.
