Knoxville, Tennessee, July 19, 2008—It's a boy! Daisy, a 32-year-old , gave birth to her third baby, George—the first chimp to be born at the Knoxville Zoo in 20 years.

George's father, Jimbo, and Daisy came to the zoo as part of the
Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Program, which determines where the endangered species will live and which animals should reproduce.

The zoo is now home to nine chimps. Between 100,000 and 200,000 wild chimps live in Africa.
