The monkey probably has better social skills

  • Print

POWELL, Ohio — The Columbus Zoo’s recent additions include a monkey named after a quirky scientist character on the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory.

The colobus monkey named Dr. Sheldon Cooper, after the awkward, neurotic character played by Jim Parsons, was born March 3. A spokeswoman says zoo staff pick names based on themes, and they made the TV show the latest one because they're fans.

She says keepers joke it's too soon to tell whether the monkey will live up to his namesake's brilliance.
