ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) - Memorial Day weekend visitors to the North Carolina Zoo will get to see the newest addition.

Zoo officials say chimpanzees Amy and Lance welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday. There are now 17 chimpanzees at the N.C. Zoo, including five chimps under the age of four. The newest chimp has not yet been named.

Chimpanzees at the zoo are divided into two groups. Throughout the day, both groups are on exhibit at different times. Each group has young playful chimps on exhibit that zoo visitors can see.

New additions at the N.C. Zoo this year include two baboons, an otter pup, three cougar kittens and a sitatunga.
