ASHEBORO, N.C. — The N.C. Zoo has welcomed a new member to their family, just in time for Memorial Day.

Zoo officials say a baby girl chimpanzee was born Tuesday to her chimpanzee parents, Amy and Lance.

The new baby has not yet been named.

There are now 17 chimps at the N.C. Zoo, including five chimps under the age of four.

Chimpanzees at the zoo are divided into two groups, and throughout the day both groups are on exhibit at different times. Each group has young playful gorillas zoo visitors can see on exhibit.

New additions at the N.C. Zoo this year include two baboons, an otter pup, three cougar kittens and a sitatunga.

    this. Quite in the monkey section I am trying to keep all of the primates in state at best place for them. Wondering are they want to move out the chimpanzees in the colony relate to the four year olds. If so why was it not mentioned yesterday in a plan including all of the animals. The zoo vet surely knew that the addition was coming and could have mentioned it then to the inspectors.
    Haaaaaaaay there little buddy you be good now and look for the meteor show this weekend. Happy Memorial Day to the little and big soldiers out in out zoo wildlife and friends.
