In celebration of the newest addition to the orangutan family, the El Paso Zoo is throwing new mommy Ibu and proud papa Butch a baby shower this Sunday and you’re invited. This is the first Sumatran orangutan ever born at the zoo, and naturally the staff is super-excited about sharing this special time with the community.
Of course, like any first time mommy, Ibu needs a few things for herself and her newborn -- you know, new monkey mom must-haves like baby blankets, a primate toy holder, a tire swing, and Legos. So the zoo staff has set up a special baby registry in hopes of collecting supplies and enrichment toys for the new simian family. You can look over the wish list and purchase a thing or two for them HERE if you'd like.
And don't forget to save the date: Sunday, May 10 (Mother's Day) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit the El Paso Zoo website for admission prices and other information.
