Dade City, Florida -- The Mystery Monkey's days as a bachelor are about to come to an end.
The female named Chrissy is currently in quarantine, to ensure she is healthy.
Zoo officials tell the Tribune the two monkeys are a perfect match, as they are similar to each other in age and temperament.
One possible complication is that Cornelius is infected with herpes B, a virus common in macaques but can be deadly in humans.
The Tampa Bay Times reports Cornelius might be neutered to prevent him passing the virus to any potential offspring.
Cornelius made national headlines as the "Mystery Monkey," he eluded capture while roaming Pinellas County for more than two years.
He became a bit of a celebrity, getting his own Facebook page, and even being featured on Comedy Central's Colbert Report. But a new sense of urgency came to capturing the slippery simianafter attacking a St. Petersburg grandmotherlast October.
A short time later, wildlife officials safely trapped Cornelius, and his days as a monkey on the lam came to an end. He eventually ended up at a large, extra-sturdy, specially-designed enclosure at Dade City's Wild Things.
