Nori was born at the North Carolina Zoo in August 2010.

— A baby chimpanzee born at the North Carolina Zoo in August will make her public debut this spring. 

Nori was hand-reared by zoo staff through her early months and is now spending time with the rest of the zoo's chimps. She is allowed to go outside for short periods when the weather is nice, the zoo said Tuesday.

Nori will be on exhibit full-time later in the spring.
