APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Zoo introduces a newborn DeBrazza's monkey to the public Tuesday.

The monkey was born last Thursday and does not have a name yet. The zoo says so far the infant's gender is unknown.

The baby is the third born to the Minnesota Zoo's pair of adult DeBrazza's monkeys, "Otis" and "Mashama." It will join its two siblings on exhibit.

DeBrazza's monkeys are located in central to East Africa. They have gray fur and a white beard that gives them the appearance of an old man, and the pairs mate for life.
