There's a new set of proud parents in Chicago, and they're going
absolutely bananas over their new arrival.
Burma, a critically endangered white-cheeked gibbon at the
Lincoln Park Zoo, gave birth to a healthy infant on Thursday.
Curator of Primates Maureen Leahy says the parents are doing well
and the infant, which has not yet been named, is "a good size with
a tight grip."
This is the third offspring for Burma and father Caruso.
Scientists believe that white-cheeked gibbons mate for life.
You can visit the new arrival at the zoo's Helen Brach Primate
House. Find Burma and you'll find her baby: newborns remain tucked
into their mother's arms for comfort and safety.
