Behold Christofur: The LA Zoo's New Kikuyu Colobus Monkey

It has been a bad, bad, bad week. How about some monkey news to brighten things up some?

This just in from the LA Zoo:

The Los Angeles Zoo's baby Kikuyu colobus monkey, born on November 27, 2009, now has a name. After holding a naming contest for the youngster and shifting through many great entries, Zoo staff chose the name Christofur for the furry primate.

The winning entry came from Eileen Hill of Huntington Beach, Calif. She will receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the Zoo.

We love you, Christofur. Now please make everything better.
