The Milwaukee County Zoo just got a whole lot cuter! The zoo is welcoming a new baby Japanese macaque.

It was born on May 8, but is being placed in an exhibit Thursday with its mother. The two will be in the zoo's Monkey Island habitat.

Japanese macaques originate in Asia, according to National Geographic.
