TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A rare Francois' langur monkey has been born at a zoo in northern Ohio
Keepers at the Toledo Zoo say the monkey was born a week ago. The zoo is one of about 20 places in the country that exhibit and breed Francois' langurs.
The zoo says the newborn's name is Tam, which means "heart" in Vietnamese.
There are an estimated 2,500 left in the wild. They are found in Vietnam, southeast China and central Laos.
The zoo says most Francois' langurs have orange hair when they are born and a long, black coat when they grow older.
