Something to sing about!

The Zoo welcomed our newest white-handed gibbon baby, born to mother Koko in May 2023. Koko has black fur, and her baby has lighter fur like its father, Elliot.

White-handed gibbons live in the forests of Southeast Asia. Female gibbons are attentive mothers and care for their infants for about a year and a half until they can eat solid food—mostly fruit—on their own.

Learn more about white-handed gibbons here and be sure to look for the gibbon family in the Forests exhibit at the Zoo on your next visit!
