Baby Gibbon Born

The Minnesota Zoo has welcomed a female gibbon to their zoo. Born about three weeks ago, the gibbon was not being cared for by her mother. She is a white-cheeked gibbon, a critically endangered species.

Our favorite part of this video is the sounds that the baby makes. She sounds like R2D2.

A baby armadillo was born on February 19 at the Minnesota Zoo.  The birth of the little charmer pictured above  is the third of its kind in the US this year.

Three-banded armadillos live in Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.  Habitat destruction has threatened their survival.
