A baby mandrill, seen here with mother Scarlett, was born July 25 2020 at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Mandrills are the largest species of monkey in the world, found in African rainforests where their habitat is disappearing because of deforestation and poaching.

Scarlett and baby have already begun making short appearances in their habitat on the Kilimanjaro Safari.

There's even a closely related animal called a "drill", I kid you not. Good to see some positive news, though.

Rafiki would be proud. "Correction I know your Mother. You're Scarlett's boy... or girl. The article doesn't say."
