Happy birthday to our baby Mexican spider monkey!

Everybody meet "HUGO!" He is one year old today, and he received a new name announced at a special Primate Talk this afternoon. Zoo staff members voted on six different choices, and "Hugo" won out-- it means "mind, heart and spirit." 

Watch video of the festivities below...
