An adult siamang is hugged by a baby siamang named Karmin-Alam which translates to "Generous Nature" in Indonesia. The name was selected to honor the Zoo's contributors who helped make the state-of-the-art ape habitat a reality. The baby siamang was born in December 2006. Siamangs, the largest gibbon species, according to the zoo, is critically endangered in the wild due to habitat loss. Siamangs are one of the few monogamous primate species who form a pair bond that typically lasts a lifetime, according to the zoo. Siamang pairs create very loud vocalizations which are uniquely their own. Their call, or "song," can be heard daily up to two miles away. Keepers say the baby is very healthy, but they have yet to determine if the infant is a male or female.
