Keeper Becomes ‘Mum’ To Adorable Baby Monkey

A zoo keeper and his fiancée have become parents sooner than they expected thanks to an adorable baby monkey. Simon Jeffrey and his partner Emma are currently mum and dad to tiny African drill monkey ‘Mubi’ after she was abandoned.

When Mubi was rejected by her mother Yola at the Aspinall Foundation’s Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent Simon, who is head of the primate section, stepped forward. When she was a newborn Simon had to feed little Mubi every two hours around the clock. Luckily, following the first week she started sleeping through the night so Simon was able to catch up on some much needed sleep.

During the day Mubi goes to work with Simon and she spends her time near to the enclosure containing the other drill monkeys. At the end of the day she goes home with Simon to spend time with her ‘siblings‘ – Jack Russell pups Ian and Daisy and a cuddly gorilla toy. It is hoped that in time she will be able to be reintegrated back into the drill group at the park.
African drills are classed as endangered and their population has dropped by more than half over the past 30 years due to hunting and deforestation.
