The Lake Superior Zoo has announced the names of the baby Angolan colobus monkeys born there this summer. The story was even featured on ABC's World News Now.
The male monkey, born June 26, has been named "Kermit" because he likes to hop around like a frog. The female monkey, born July 16, is named "Kaya" after a city in central Africa.
Five hundred dollars from the baby-naming voting process and other donations received at the Boo at the Zoo event will will be sent to Colobus Conservation in Kenya.
