This fresh-faced fellow's name is Nangua, which is Mandarin for "Pumpkin." Born at the zoo last November, he hails from a very rare vintage of monkey called a Francois' langur, also known as a leaf monkey.
There are just 800 of his kind left in the world. He isn't the only Francois' langur born in captivity. There's also Raven, a girl, born at the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee last month.
The species was once commonly found throughout Asia, but now, thanks to habitat loss and poaching, they're mostly confined to pockets of China and Vietnam.
As the only zoo in Australia to care for these animals, Taronga is coordinating with other zoos, as it claims in a press release, to "ensure a future for the species."
