Celebrate your Memorial Day weekend at the North Carolina Zoo with Amy and Lance and their new baby girl!

The newborn chimpanzee was born Tuesday evening to the proud parents bringing the total number of chimps at the N.C. Zoo to 17 including five chimps under 4-years-old.

The newest addition has not been named yet.

Chimpanzees at the zoo are divided into two groups. Both groups are on exhibit at different times throughout the day.

Other new additions this year at the N.C. Zoo include two baboons, an otter pup, three cougar kittens and a sitatunga.
