It’s a bouncing baby boy! (boy orangutan, that is)

Toronto Zoo officials have announced the birth of a Sumatran orangutan. It’s a big deal because the Sumatran orangutan is a highly endangered species that could face total extinction with the next ten years. This is the fifth baby for mother Puppe, who is known to be a caring and experienced mother. And yes, the pictures posted here are of Puppe and her newborn. Ain’t he cute?
