Meet Nangua, A Very Rare (And Very Adorable) Bright Orange Baby Monkey

This tiny monkey has just been born at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo and he’s one of the rarest (and possibly cutest) baby monkeys in the world.

Baby Nangua is a male Francois Iangur monkey. Although they used to live throughout China and Vietnam, due to habitat loss and poaching there’s just 2,000 left in the world.

This cheeky monkey gets his name,”Nangua”, from the Mandarin word for pumpkin –perfectly suited to this guy’s bright orange fur.

The bright orange fur is thought to help adult monkeys identify their babies.

According to zookeepers, Nangua has been receiving lots of attention from his female relatives since his birthday on November 7th.

Nangua currently weighs about the same as an iPhone, but sadly he probably won’t go in your pocket (not without a fight, anyway).

He’ll start turning black (and grow some impressive white sideburns) when he’s roughly a year old .

But while he’s still teeny-tiny and adorable, we can watch this video of Nangua’s life so far and imagine him monkeying around our house.
