The arrival of an extremely rare baby Silvery Gibbon has delighted park staff on the Isle of Man.
Curraghs Wildlife Park, in Ballaugh, announced the birth of the endangered ape as part of their mission to maintain genetically diverse populations of threatened species.
Silvery Gibbons, recognisable for their long, silver-grey fur, have lost much of their natural habitat to deforestation - with only 2,000 adults remaining in the wild.
The baby gibbon, which has not yet been named, is the third of its kind to be born in the wildlife sanctuary to mother, Slamet, since 2017.
The wildlife park said on Facebook: “Slamet is doing a great job, as always she’s an excellent mum!”
