Newborn hoolock gibbon with its mother spotted in southwest China

A one-month-old hoolock gibbon was found snuggling up to its mother, in footage shot on Jan 4, 2019 by Chinese scientists in a nature reserve in southwest China’s Yunnan Province, which is rarely seen. The Gaoligong Mountain, where hoolock gibbons were caught by cameras, is known for its rich biodiversity.The footage shows a mother hoolock gibbon with yellow hair, sitting on a tree, put her arms around the baby gibbon. The little one was born just a month or so ago, with grey hair. The baby gibbon was very quiet, snuggling up to its mother. Cute and naughty, it fiddled with leaves from time to time. The hoolock gibbon is sensitive and alert by nature, inhabiting in deep forest. The species gives birth to a baby in three to four years, with pregnancy period lasting for around 200 days. It can only conceive one baby at a time. So it is very hard to shoot images of them, let alone baby gibbons.
