New Baby Siamang

Brian and Johore welcome Eerie.

05/3/2017 - The ABQ BioPark's siamangs welcomed a new addition on April 5, 2017 - a new baby named Eerie. The gender is still unknown. Parents are 28-year-old Brian and 25-year-old Johore, and ape staff report that the entire family is doing well. This is the pair’s third offspring, including 3-year-old Tika, who is big sister to the baby. Mom and family will be out in their habitat as usual, weather permitting.

"This has been a great opportunity for Tika to learn from mother about rearing an infant," said Debbie Wiese, ABQ BioPark zookeeper supervisor.
