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!
