A white-cheeked gibbon was born on June 9 at the Brookfield Zoo.
The infant is the third male in the last five years born to his mom, Indah, 25.
Currently, the gibbon family includes mom and her new baby, Benny, 29, the dad, and the baby’s two brothers Thani, 5 and Cuong, 2.
They can all been seen in the zoo’s Tropic World: Asia exhibit.
White-cheeked gibbons are a native species of Vietnam and the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
They are presumed extinct in China.
The dramatic decline of these animals in the wild is due primarily to hunting and habitat loss.
Head over to the Brookfield zoo to check them out!
