Orangutan girl born in Leipzig Zoo

Great joy in the Leipzig Zoo: a few days ago an as yet nameless orangutan baby saw the light of day.

Leipzig – An orangutan girl was born in the Leipzig Zoo. It is still nameless and already the second child of the 17-year-old mother Raja, said zoo director Jörg Junhold on Wednesday.
