Can You Guess How the Owl-Faced Monkey Got Its Name?

Born on March 19, check out this cutie pie. Hellooooo. The owl-faced baby monkey (fancy name: Cercopithecus Hamlyni) poses with mom, Kamina, who looks a bit more like this namesake, wouldn't you say? Yup, I definitely see it, this babe will grow up with that intense owly gaze, trademark coloring and hopefully help the animals' population. After all, there are only 31 left in captivity (and five breeding females) to help this threatened species.
