Denver Zoo Celebrates First Mandrill Birth in 16 Years

Staff at Denver Zoo in Colorado welcomed a newborn mandrill on May 10. According to the zoo, Kesi is the first mandrill born there since a “boom” at the zoo in 2003 when they had two. Kesi was born to seven-year-old mom Kumani and 11-year-old dad Jelani. Jelani joined the zoo in 2013, while Kumani arrived in 2018 as part of a plan by US zoos to help threatened species survive.
