Mally the monkey, Justin Bieber's former pet, has emerged from quarantine at his new German home three months after the pop star brought him to the country. The 6-month-old capuchin monkey moved into a new enclosure at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, northern Germany, today. He will soon be introduced to the zoo's other capuchin monkeys. "Mally is a clever little guy and we're confident that he will settle in quickly," says the zoo manager.

Mally was transferred to the zoo last month from a Munich animal shelter where he had been since being seized by German customs March 28. Bieber failed to produce the required vaccination and import papers after arriving for a European tour, and Mally's ownership was transferred to the German state May 21. (Read more Mally stories.)
