Monkey Gets a Root Canal (Good Video)

Even monkeys need to go to the dentist.

Mango, a squirrel monkey at the San Antonio Zoo, underwent a root canal Tuesday.

The zoo's staff veterinarian said they had to use tiny instruments on the two-pound primate.

He expects Mango will make a speedy recovery.

In fact, Mango is already back at the exhibit with eight other squirrel monkeys.
