An 8-week-old bonobo (pronounced bah-NO-bow) made her official debut to the public today at the Cincinnati Zoo. The baby girl was born November 17 to mother "Kimia" and father "Vergil." This is the zoo's eighth bonobo birth.

The Cincinnati Zoo is only one of eight zoos in the country to exhibit bonobos. There are few of them left in the wild.
