Memphis Zoo welcomes newborn spot-nosed guenon

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis Zoo gave their newest addition a very warm welcome.

Benjamin Button, a spot-nose guenon, was recently born, and judging by his picture, is happy to be a part of the zoo family.

Spot-nose guenons are a type of monkey native to central and west Africa.

Benjamin Button, or Button for short, is the zoo's first baby of 2016, which coincidentally is the Year of The Monkey in the Chinese Zodiac.
