Buttonwood Park Zoo has just welcomed the cutest bearded emperor monkey to its animal family and wants your help to name the little guy.

This summer is all about the cuteness at the New Bedford zoo. A visit might be worthwhile just to see the new addition.

The birth makes Buttonwood home to the largest group of this type of monkey in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

Now, the zoo is looking to the community for help in naming the cutie-pie, taking suggestions on Facebook.

The female monkey was born on April 3, becoming the ninth member of the bearded emperor tamarin monkey clan at Buttonwood.

"Native to lowland tropical rainforests of Bolivia, Brazil and Peru, these small, tree-dwelling monkeys are not currently endangered, but rapid deforestation, infrastructure construction and wildlife trafficking are threatening this species," the zoo said on Facebook. "Their numbers are currently declining in the wild."

The new monkey is the offspring of mom Pepper and dad Jack. Her siblings include Brie, Gouda, Feta, Cheddar, Parm and Reggiano.

"We will take all the name suggestions and plan to announce her new name next week," Conservation Program Manager Lindsey Audunson said.

Regardless of what they decide to name the baby, she is the cutest monkey ever. It's been a minute since I've been to the zoo so I think it's time for me to go see this cutie.

Check out some of these other sweet pictures of the newest zoo resident.
