This baby gelada is the first in years, and he is the cutest ever!


We are always getting excited about these wildlife stories, and this one is very special. At the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo, they are having a special occasion. It’s the first time in more than 13 years; a baby gelada is out to life.

If you don’t know what Gelada is, it’s a species of old world monkeys that was found in Ethiopian Highlands, sometimes it called Gelada baboon or the bleeding – heart baboon because of that red patch on their chest.

The photos below are for that new born baby, and it’s adorably cute!
