http://youtu.be/2j_79c2ijt8

The new mums of the the François’ Langur Monkey baby are sharing responsibility which is also known as alloparental, which is what they do in the wild as well.
The two new babies are from the same dad called Chow-chow, who arrived from San Francisco Zoo in Feb 2016 and mums Pak Choi and Lychee, moved to the Zoo from China in 2009.
Pak Choi and Lychee are both capable mum’s and share responsibilities for the infants.
The François’ Langur Monkey is also knows as the Francois’ leaf monkey, Tonkin leaf monkey, or white side-burned black langur. Watch out for more footage!
They still have their orange golden fur, which will change as they are getting older.
