We never get bored of looking at cute baby animals and baby Billie is the latest one to steal our hearts.

Billie, a Gelada baboon, was born on 8 July at Dudley Zoo, West Midlands. The teeny tiny monkey belongs to mum, Addis, and dad, Ebano.

Conservationist and TV presenter Bill Oddie is visiting the zoo this month to open a £20,000 "Bamboo on the Bank" exhibit, so this sweetie was named after him!

Jade Reddall, who works at the zoo, said: "Billie is gorgeous and is already very alert. He loves watching what is going on and is already starting to communicate with the other group members through facial expression, which is how they interact.

"The other females are helping to groom Billie and keep an eye on him, but mum, Addis, is the prime carer by nursing him and carrying him around the enclosure and she's doing a great job."

It seems like Billie has got everyone eating out of his hands - or should we say paws? - and who can blame them? He's adorable!
