BOISE -- Zoo Boise is celebrating the birth of a new, baby monkey.

Zoo officials say the baby boy is a black-crested mangabey monkey, born to parents Murphy and Betty just last week.

Although the baby monkey doesn't have a name yet, he is now on exhibit at the zoo.

This is the first mangabey monkey born in Boise. Officials say mangabeys are native to central Africa and are closely related to baboons.
