Jill the Schmidt’s guenon is on exhibit now with her infant
If the 2013 Zoo Atlanta baby boom was over for the year, no one told Jill the Schmidt’s guenon. Jill gave birth to a healthy infant on November 30, 2013, and can be seen on exhibit now with her new offspring.
Found throughout sub-Saharan Africa, Schmidt’s guenons are colorful, medium-sized monkeys. The species is not currently classified as endangered, but wild populations are threatened by deforestation and illegal hunting.
Jill is an experienced and capable mother; the new arrival is the second offspring for her and male Jasiri. Look for trio on exhibit, weather permitting.
