Get ready for extreme adorableness!
With spring comes zoo babies, and the Denver Zoo certainly has its hands full with little ones, including bongo babies galore!
In April, bongo parents Fern and Howard welcomed Felix.
"Drumroll, please! Meet Felix, our newest bongo calf! Born on April 10 to parents Fern and Howard, Felix is already out and about in the bongo yard! Catch him and our whole bongo herd in Central Ranges, to the left after you go under the bridge in Toyota Elephant Passage. See our new friend get some playtime with big sister Fennel, and half-sister Carrot in this Baby Bulletin, presented by SCL Health," said the Zoo's Facebook page.
Check him out as he takes a romp around his home!
But Felix wasn't the only little one the bongo herd welcomed so far this year!
"No, you’re not seeing double—we’re having a bit of a baby bongo boom over here! Say hi to Clover, who joined the herd just a few weeks after big half-brother Felix! Clover is Columbine and Howard’s third calf, and her arrival brings our bongo herd total to eight! Check out our lucky Clover in this Baby Bulletin, presented by SCL Health," said the zoo. Check her out in all her cuteness below!
And that's not all! On May 6, the mandrill troop welcomed baby Akili.
"Akili is Kumani and Jelani’s second baby, joining big sister Kesi in Congo Basin. With a name meaning “wisdom” or “intelligence” in Swahili, Akili is already exploring her new home and bonding with the troop. Check out the party we threw for Akili and the troop in this Baby Bulletin, presented by SCL Health," said the zoo. Watch the family celebrate below! What a sweetie this little mandrill is.
