King Colobus Devon

A West African, King Colobus Monkey has been successfully bred at Paignton Zoo in Devon. Rated as 'vulnerable' by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the successful birth of the healthy baby is thought to be a significant step towards boosting the species' population. At the time of writing, the threatened species can be seen in only six zoos within Europe.
