The park, which takes in abused primates from across the world, has a few homegrown mums of its own.
Baby chimpanzee Thelma is being cared for by mum Cherri, and woolly monkey mum Xingu recently gave birth to baby boy Xavi.
Meanwhile, Hsiao-qua, a great orang-utan mum, is caring for her adopted daughter Awan.
A park spokesman explained: “At Monkey World there has been a great success in creating adoptive families.
“Some are now part of international breeding programmes for endangered species and have gone on to become mothers themselves.”
The spokesman added that every baby born at Monkey World as part of international breeding programs helps to protect endangered primates from extinction.
