Now I’m a believer — monkeys have names

The Lake Superior Zoo announced the names of the baby Angolan colobus monkeys born this summer at the zoo.

“Kaya” has been chosen for the female born July 16, and “Kermit” has been
chosen for the male born June 26.

Kaya is named for a city in central Africa, and Kermit took his namesake from the popular frog known to be covered in green felt, because he likes to hop around like — you guessed it — a frog.

The zoo asked for the community’s help in naming the monkeys. Guests who attended “Boo at the Zoo” were given the opportunity to cast their votes and give to colobus conservation efforts.
