Hi Rich,

That is pretty cool. I did not know that primates also had their babies in the late spring and early summer.

Hi Craig

This species of monkey have a limited breeding season which is dependent on the abundance of food. Normally breeding occurs at around March to June. Gestation lasts about 23 weeks. A single offspring will be produced by each female in the spring to summer months. Although this monkey was born in early to mid spring, it is still the only newborn of the troop. We will more than likely begin to see more young as we move into summer. It is a far more spread out period than impalas who all drop together over the course of a 2 week period.
