The birth is extremely positive news for the critically endangered species.

Northern-white cheeked gibbons originate from tropical rainforests in Laos, Vietnam.

They’re relatively small apes with long arms that they use to hang from branches and swing through trees.

They eat mainly fruit, but also leaves, flowers and insects.

Unlike other primates, they forage throughout the entire day.

Marked as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List, the birth of these two animals is testament to Twycross Zoo’s conservation programmes and hard-working staff.
