- Sydney, Australia -
It’s really hard not to fall in love with this baby!
Zoo keepers at the Taronga Zoo are delighted to announce the birth of a male Francois‘ Langur.
This orange-furred baby is not even two weeks old. He was born on September 26, to his mom Noel.
The fur will stay orange for only a few weeks, it will then turn dark like the mom’s as he gets older.
Isn’t this fascinating?
These stunning animals are only found in Vietnam and China, but they are threatened by poachers and loss of habitat from expanding development. (Always mankind destroying Nature).
The zoo estimates there are only about 3,000 of the species left in the wild.
"Seeing Francois' Langurs in the wild is incredibly rare, but seeing a baby is even more so," said senior zoo keeper Jane Marshall.
Welcome to the world baby and congratulations to mom Noel.
