E is for embrace

E is for embrace and enduring love that knows no end.

This is a baby white cheeked Gibbon. She is female. It is the first baby Gibbon born at the Adelaide Zoo. As she grows older when she reaches adolescence she will change into the black colour of a male. When she is then ready to mate she will again change her colour back to the white of her mother.

Gibbons are a critically endangered species. Their numbers in the wild have declined by 80% in the last 45 years.

As yet she does not have a name. Do you have any suggestions?
