Hiccup Monkey

From the Sun the following story SOKOJOO the baby monkey has been abandoned by her mother - because of her chronic HICCUPS.
The tiny Colobus started the noisy spasms within days of being born on December 30.

Staff at Newquay Zoo in Cornwall said she was gulping down milk from her mum Sierra too quickly and making the ’hic’ sound after every feed.

The problem got so bad that Sierra refused to feed her and started sitting on top of the 800g mite as a sign of rejection.

Cute ... Sokojoo will be slowly reintroduced to
the Colobus monkey adults
Keepers have now removed Sokojoo from the Colobus enclosure and are hand-rearing her with a bottle.
