Watch: Newborn orangutan coos as it plays with its carer's fleece
Zookeepers in Kansas have welcomed a gorgeous new face into the world – a baby Sumatran orangutan.
The little one was born via Caesarean section after mum Daisy showed signs of complications, but looked happy hanging on to the keepers’ ape-imitating outfits while Daisy recovered.
What a face.
The cooing oranguatan is a girl, and she is currently being looked after by zookeepers – who wear fleece-fringed shirts that imitate her mother’s fur.
She will be reunited with her mum once Daisy has recovered from the operation, which was performed by doctors from College Hill Obstetrics and Gynaecology – who usually treat humans.
Sumatrans are one of three species of orangutan, but they are sadly critically endangered due to the destruction of their forest habitat.
The Sumatran Orangutan Society says there are just 14,600 remaining in the wild.
