(6/22/2014)

A baby Javanese Langur monkey (Lutung Jawa) has been born at the Bali Zoo in Singapdu, Gianyar, Bali.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Emma Kristiana Chandra, the spokesperson for the Zoo, said, “At this time the Lutung Jawa is under close observation by our medical team to ensure proper nutrition and the best of care.”

The baby primate born on June 13, 2014 at 9:30 am is a male and, like all baby Javanese Langurs has bright orange fur that, by the time it is 4-5 years old, will become black. Always born in a single delivery after a 7-month gestation period, the monkeys can live for 20 years.

The first birth of its kind at the Bali Zoo for this endangered primate species (Trachypithecus auratus); the baby weighed only 500 grams at birth.

The monkey was born to a female named “Dara” who is seven and a father named "Tibo" who is eight. In the wild, the care of newborns is a tasked shared by all the females within a pack of langurs.

The male born in Bali will also develop a very loud shrieking voice used in nature to warn other primates to stay clear if its territory.

The Bali Zoo is proudly pointing to the birth as proof of their success as a conservation institution for endangered endemic animal species in Indonesia.

In the wild, a Langur spends its entire life in an arboreal setting. The money is very slim and can grow to 80 centimeters in length, including its long tail.+++

In the wild, the Javanese Langur can only be found in Java, Bali and Lombok.
