The male black-and-white colobus monkey born in December at the St. Louis Zoo finally has a name: Hawthorn.
The zoo made its announcement Thursday, and a spokeswoman said zookeepers chose it because it’s a botanical name, after the tree or shrub, and it goes along with his 1-year-old sister’s name, Willow.
