The above video of a baby monkey playing with puppies is an incredibly adorable sight that is sure to make your day.
Mubi, a baby drill monkey that was abandoned by its mother found a new family and has become good friends with two Jack Russell puppies, following a heartbreaking early life. Mubi’s mom began attacking her not long after she was born forcing the zookeepers to hand-rear her in an enclosed area of Port Lympne Zoo in the U.K.
According to the video, zookeeper Simon Jeffrey says drill monkeys are extremely endangered and are listed as one of the 25 most endangered primates in Africa. A close eye on Mubi’s well-being is important to ensure she’ll be able reproduce when the time comes.
“It’s nice for her to interact with other animals her own size and her own age as well,” Jeffrey points out.
Mubi will be separated from her parents until she is old enough to take care of herself.
