The little De Brazza’s Monkey born in early June at Milwaukee County Zoo now has a name! The animal care team decided on “Heri.” In Swahili, the name means “happiness” and can also mean “blessed” or “good luck.”
Heri has become more independent and quite adventurous. Holly continues to be a very attentive mom and is available if he needs help. Dad, Hugo, maintains a respectful distance.
Heri has been weighed with Holly holding him, and they recently weighed 6 kg (about 13 pounds) together.
