Francois Langur Babie! - Born November 19, 2014!

I just realized I missed posting about the birth of the latest Francois Langur Monkey!  Good Grief!  I apologize to the Langur Family.  Congratulations Jing Jing and Issac!

I have been visiting and watching this Babie since it was born on November 19th, I just haven't posted. Looking back, I see that I was busy posting about the Gorilla Tragedy, and then the Chimp situation.  I feel awful.

I will add in some photos soon!

I have to look through my pix for a good one, this Babie moves around super quik!  ... Here is a video I took last Wednesday, you can see how fast he is!

The Babie Langur, who was named Chan by his Keeper Dave, just turned four months old.  He was born to Mama Jiang Jiang and Papa Issac.  Jiang Jiang (and I hope I'm spelling it right, I'm going from memory) was born at the Zoo five years ago.  So, Babie Chan is a third generation SFZoo Langur! Mama's Sister Kathleen also lives in this Family Group and helps "mother" Chan.  She has a breeding recommendation with Issac as well.
