Tiny monkey is rejected by mother and beats the odds thanks to devoted keepers

When her own mommy abandoned her shortly after giving birth, another very small monkey discovered herself in the most difficult circumstances.

The delicate being’s fate looked set with all the chances stacked against her, but wildlife officials at the Houston Wildlife park, where she had been born, used to have a different perspective.

They’ve recently started bottle-feeding the Goeldi’s monkey back to full health!

The primate keepers discovered the adorable tiny creature, measuring less than half an ounce, in the Goeldi’s monkey’s cage.

Nevertheless, despite the keepers’ efforts, the parents refused to receive her baby, thus they felt they would just have to act decisively in order to save her life.

As a result, this newborn baby monkey was sent to the vet acute care unit.

After being abandoned by her parents, the young monkey dubbed Betty by the keepers in honor of the late popular actresses as well as animal advocate, Betty White.

She would be kept under the care of the keeper over the next several months.

Doctors will look after her and, more importantly, nourish her all around the clock till she is healthy enough just to reconnect with her parents.

“She did not have the capacity to hang on to mum and nurse properly,” Amy, a keeper at the zoo’s clinic, explained.

“We’re breastfeeding her every two hours, it’s a 24-hour job.  It’s tough to comprehend, but it takes a village to grow a monkey this little.”
