Born March 9, the Angolan colobus monkey is completely white, but won't stay that way for long. In the next three months, the baby's color will change from white to gray to black. Then it'll match mom's coloring, as the newborn camouflage to blend in with her white whiskers is no longer needed.
The baby, who has not been named, and its mother, Olivia, are in Tropic World/Africa at Brookfield Zoo. Visitors can see them, but have to look closely- Olivia tends to shy away from crowds and prefers to keep her newborn in the corner.
Olivia shares her duties with the other females in the group- her mother, Tina, 17; and sister, Chaka, 4. They all take turns carrying the baby, who goes back to Olivia to nurse. Dad is Sasha, 12, who also lives at the zoo.
The baby's gender has not yet been determined.
