The First Mandrill Babies in More Than 40 Years!
Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens
5333 Zoo Drive
323 644 4200
The Los Angeles Zoo welcomes two Mandrill babies. They are the largest of the monkey species and one of the most colorful.
The female baby was born on August 3, 2017 to five-year-old mother, Juliette. The male baby was born on August 17, 2017 to four-year-old mother, Clementine. The first-time mothers came to the L.A. Zoo from Parc Zoologique de La Palmyr in France in April 2016 to be paired with the first-time father, six-year-old Jabari, as part of a Species Survival Program (SSP) to strengthen the gene pool of this vulnerable species.
We can watch them as they learn to navigate their new habitat. This is a rainforest-like environment that supplies the group with plenty of trees, logs, and plant life to explore during the day and aerial lofts and ledges where they sleep at night.
