Adorable Suckling Week Old Critically Endangered Gibbon

The adorable critically endangered northern white cheeked gibbon baby is trying to find mums tit to suckle. The infant was born at the Twycross zoo only a week ago.
The Females are a cream colour, and males are black.
An interesting fact is that all babies are born with a cream colour, and will change to black after about one to two years! When they reach sexual maturity, between between 7-8 years, males remain black and females change back to their cream colour!
