Spot 6 Differences in this outstanding photo of Houston Zoo's baby Goeldi’s Monkey! Facebook Supporters and Patreons will receive the answer key tomorrow!
Last month, the primate keepers at the Houston Zoo found a surprise waiting for them when they approached the Goeldi’s (pronounced "gell-dees") monkey night house—a tiny baby hanging onto a branch in her enclosure. The team moved swiftly to reintroduce her to her mother, Kylie. In doing so, the animal care professionals found the infant to be significantly smaller than a typical Goeldi’s newborn.
Unfortunately attempts to encourage Kylie to take the baby—named Betty in honor of the late, beloved actress and animal lover, Betty White—were not immediately successful so the team made the decision to hand-raise Betty while continuing to encourage parental bonding.
