Last week, we were all cooing over the San Diego Zoo's baby fennec fox. This week, it's Santa Ana Zoo's tiny baby monkeys.

The four monkeys were all born in late July. One is a black and white Colobus Monkey. This type of monkey is born all white, and its black and white coloring fills in around four months. The zoo also has twin Golden-Headed Lion Tamarins, which can be seeing clinging to their mother and hitching a ride. The last is a baby Howler Monkey. This is the first Howler Monkey born at the Santa Ana Zoo.

"It is rare and exciting to have so many baby monkeys at one time," said Lauren Bergh, Zoo Education Specialist, in a release. "Guests will love bringing their 'little monkeys' to watch and learn how these monkeys play and interact with their families as they grow. As we all know, they won't stay babies for long."

If these picture aren't cute enough for you, here is a video of the Colobus Monkeys.
