New Saki monkey born at Como Zoo; gender unknown

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Como Zoo's newest Saki monkey is on display at the primate building this week — but zoo officials say they won't know if it's a boy or a girl for a few weeks.

For now, zoo officials named the monkey "Green Bean," because its mother, Patty, has been eating green beans since she gave birth on Saturday.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the monkey's gender won't be known until its facial coloring develops. It will get an official name then.
