IT’s so tiny vets still don’t know its sex.
Fuengirola Bioparc’s new addition is the first golden-cheeked gibbon to be born in Spain, and the latest to be born on the continent.
At one month old, the pint-sized primate is said to be in good health and clings to its mother, Ares, day and night.
The species is unique thanks to its distinctive blonde which, during the first three years of life, helps confuse predators.
The males turn black when they reach maturity, while the females retain their golden hair.
The gibbon is native to Southeast Asia. Of the seventeen species that exist today, all of them are in danger of extinction.
Fuengirola Biopark is the only zoo in Spain which participates in a conservation programme for the species.
