AWARD-winning Isle of Wight attraction the Monkey Haven is celebrating a new arrival.
The baby capuchin's parents, Lulu and Peppino, both came to the Isle of Wight sanctuary after being bullied at the zoos where they lived previously.
A Monkey Haven spokeswoman said: "We've all gone totally baby crazy with the arrival of a new little capuchin. The sweetest bundle of fur made his or her first appearance on Saturday morning, just in time for Easter.
"We don't know yet if it's a male or female, all will be revealed in due course.
"Mum Lulu has been keeping her baby snuggled up on her back and is totally smitten. Dad Peppino has even more swagger in his step.
"The baby's brothers Milo and Malou are very curious and will enjoy getting up to all kinds of mischief with the new arrival. They've been trying to play with him already, but Mum is very protective and doing a great job fending them off!"
Founder of Monkey Haven Don Walser said: "We're delighted! The proud parents Lulu and Peppino were both bullied at other zoos but they've found happiness now with their own little family."
The charity will be hoping for more good news on Monday, when it will discover if it has won a national VisitEngland award.

As promised.. a little footage of Lulu with her new baby ??
