Dallas Zoo Welcomes Baby Gibbon

A baby gibbon was born in Dallas Zoo but he will not be available for public viewing yet according to The Dallas Morning News article. In it they say,


“A tiny, yet-to-be-named gibbon is one of the Dallas Zoo’s newest arrivals. 


On Wednesday, the zoo shared a photo of the baby ape, staring wide-eyed at the camera, his tiny feet perched on a human’s forearm. 


Zoo guests will not see the white-cheeked baby playing at Primate Place just yet, but they might hear him making noise or notice zoologists moving him behind the habitat.”


Its parents have shown no interest or even the instinct to raise the baby so it is currently being taken care of by the zookeepers according to a FOX 4 KDFW article which reports,


“Apparently, his parents have shown no instinct or interest in raising him.


The zoo said it’s common for first-time primate mothers to need a little time.


“We know maternal care is learned, and it is common for mothers to need time to acclimate to their new role, especially for first time moms like Tualang. So, the primate team was able to step in from day one and care for the baby round the clock to try to give mom time to get her bearings. They are feeding him formula every two hours, weighing him, checking his temperature, and delivering consistent and responsive care for this little one to make sure he is healthy,” the Dallas Zoo said on its Facebook page.”


The zoo staff hope that the mother will warm up to the little one and raise him. If she doesn’t, the staff will raise him.
