THE NEWBORN WOOLLY JUMPER...

Daily Express

PROUD keepers at an animal sanctuary in Wareham, Dorset are celebrating a tiny new arrival - a rare baby monkey. At just 400 grams this tiny bundle of fluff weighs about the same as a tin of beans. He is getting plenty of attention from Monkey World’s director, Alison Cronin, who has taken on the challenge of temporary mum, hand-rearing the little Woolly monkey after he was unable to suckle. “We pulled him out of the group because he wasn’t thriving with his mother, even though she was trying her best. His tail and arms, which should have been clinging on to his mother, were dangling limp. “We think it’s because when he was born he had already cut three teeth,” she told express.co.uk. But although he's woolly, the new arrival isn't quite up to jumping around yet. She added: “He wouldn’t suckle because his mouth was sore from teething and in turn that made him dehydrated - so he couldn’t cling on.” Much like human babies, this newborn needs plenty of tender loving care. He is fed every two hours and sleeps on a heated pad, wrapped in blankets.
