NASCAR driver Tony Stewart's former pet debuts at Louisville Zoo

One of the Louisville Zoo's newest residents made his public debut Friday.  Mojo is NASCAR driver Tony Stewart's former pet.

The 3-year-old monkey is a big hit among the children.  Mojo is being integrated with three female Patas monkeys in the Gorilla Forest.

Animal Curator Steve Wing tells Fox 41 News, "He's doing well, we had some concerns, but the girls are teaching him behaviors, some that he inately knows, doing a pretty good job."

When Mojo became aggressive, Tony Stewart sought help.  The Association of Zoos and Aquariums recommended the Louisville Zoo as a great fit for Mojo.

The monkey flew to Louisville in August by a private jet.
