    Move over, Mally!

    The Columbus Zoo has named its newest monkey after the hilarious physicist on The Big Bang Theory.

    Dr. Sheldon Cooper, a colobus monkey, was born on March 3 in Powell, Ohio, and was one of four recent births in the zoo's African forest exhibits, according to the Huffington Post.

    We hope the latest addition to the zoo lives up to his cute Hollywood moniker.
