Justin Bieber's capuchin monkey -- confiscated by German officials -- is out of quarantine and about to join a new "family" at Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, near Hanover in northern Germany. SERENGETI PARK
Mally is 27 weeks old and weighs 1.3 kilograms. He was taken to a Munich animal shelter after he was confiscated at the end of March as Bieber arrived in Germany on tour. SERENGETI PARK
Karl Heinz Joachim of the animal shelter told CNN in April that the monkey was "not distressed" but was too young to have been taken from his mother. SERENGETI PARK
Mally is to start life with his new family of six other capuchin monkeys, three males and three females. SERENGETI PARK
Mally is the first to arrive at the zoo's new monkey area, says spokeswoman Juliane Gunkel. His new home consists of a tree-covered island dubbed "Mally-bu." SERENGETI PARK
