DES MOINES, IA (WHO-DT/CNN) – It doesn't get much cuter than this – three Japanese macaques made their debut Tuesday at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, IA.

Two females were born at the zoo earlier this month, and the male was born a New York's Buffalo Zoo.

They were all abandoned by their mothers and are being hand-raised by zookeepers.

In the wild, baby moneys cling to their moms so they were given teddy bears to hold on to.

Officials hope they will be able to join the macaque troupe at the zoo when they are older.
