As if your Friday couldn't get any sweeter, we have some adorable pictures of a baby Colombian spider monkey for you to enjoy.

Born to parents Batty and dad Arnold, the newborn primate's gender is not yet known so it has yet to be given a name.

Although the monkey was born on April 4, its mother has been holding it close and keeping it hidden from the view of the public. 

Until now that is.

Speaking on the wildlife park's new member, Primate Lead Warden Teresa Power said,

Births in the wildlife park are always special but the birth of such a critically endangered species is a joyous event and a great reminder of why breeding programmes in Wildlife Parks and Zoos are so important.

We know where we're going this weekend...
