Duke the Baby Gibbon

Born: April 29, 2013
Home: Greensboro Science Center

All About Baby: As a wide-eyed wonder, Duke was born to high expectations. Said one official at the Greensboro Science Center: "Duke is an amazing infant ambassador for an entire Javan Gibbon species on the brink of extinction." Despite being abandoned by his mother at birth (fairly common for a first child), Duke is doing fairly well and will be nursed by zoo staffers until he's able to sustain himself in a few months.
