Baby monkey makes history at zoo

Nantoo the monkey

Nantoo the baby monkey is busy making history at Howletts Zoo in Kent.

He's a Heck Macaque monkey and it's thought he's the first of his kind to be born in captivity.

At the moment he's being hand-raised by keepers at the zoo, but it's hoped he'll be back with his mum soon.
