siamang is the Honolulu Zoo’s latest edition. The cutie was born last month but it made it’s public debut just in time for Mother’s Day. KITV 4’s Ashley Moser reports. NAT 8:27 It’s not your ordinary birth announcement — three loud siamangs swinging from pole to pole — celebrating the arrival of their newest family member. Jessica 11:53 “A LOT OF EXCITEMENT APPARENTLY THEY’RE HAPPY THERE’S A NEW BABY IN TOWN DEFINITELY A GOOD MOTHER’S DAY TREAT ANYONE COMING THROUGH.” 12:02 A crowd watches as Mother Mahina, father Elvis and daughter Haumea care for the newborn. The adorable primate is in the cling-on stage where it only hangs on to mom. Reyshell 14:22 “SHE IS JUST LIKE MY LITTLE BOY ATTACHED TO ME WHILE BREAST- FEEDING DOESN’T LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. I FELT LIKE THE OTHER FAMILY IS PROTECTING HER.” 14:32 The siamang is one of 50 primates at the Honolulu zoo. These guys are commonly mistaken for monkeys but they’re actually gibbons. The difference: they don’t have tails. They can reach a height of 1 meter and weight up to 30 pounds but it’s their loud throat pouch that really set them apart. NAT 8:50 The little newborn is no where near making those loud calls — but it’s grabbing attention in a different way. Yakira 6:50 “IT LOOK’S CUTE!” 6:54 Standup Ashley 20:48 “NOW THE REASON THE BABY SAIMANG DOESN’T HAVE A NAME JUST YET IT’S BECAUSE IT’S HARD TO TELL THE GENDER. THEY ACTUALLY THOUGHT HER OLDER SISTER RIGHT THERE WAS A BOY.” 20:56 18:36 “WHEN THEY’RE FIRST BORN LIKE THAT OF COURSE IT’S KIND OF HARD TO SEE MOM PRETTY MUCH CLUTCH IS IT ALL THE TIME BUT IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME BEFORE YOU CAN ACTUALLY TELL IF IT’S A MALE OR FEMALE.” 18:45 So until then — names like cutie-pie will just have to do. Ashley Moser — KITV 4 News. Also new to the zoo — a healthy baby sloth. The little one was born on April 20th. It’s the first baby for mother Harriet. Her pregnancy lasted for 4 months. Like the siamang — keepers won’t know the gender just yet — but they are excited to have the newborn sloth.
