Dublin Zoo Welcomes Two White Crowned Mangabey Babies

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredMonkey

White Crowned Mangabey Babies

There must be something in the water at Dublin Zoo because their monkey family just grew by two!

Two White Crowned Mangabey monkeys, a male and a female, were born only two weeks apart, several weeks ago.

The male, Jomoro, and the female, Awiane, were both fathered by the same dominant male, Danzo.

Team leader of the African Plains exhibit at the zoo said:

"We're delighted with the arrival of two Mangabeys which brings the Dublin Zoo troop of these elegant monkeys up to eight. Jomoro and Awiane are thriving and get on very well as brother and sister. It’s a joy to watch them being playful together."

That's so great!!

White Crowned Mangabeys are endangered in the wild and aren't doing well, their numbers constantly decreasing.

So the breeding program at Dublin Zoo is extra ahmayzing! These babies are so special and important!

Way to go, Dublin Zoo!! Take care of those cuties!!

Baby Tasmanian Devil Is The World's Cutest Critter!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooTasmanian Devil

On mainland Australia, Devil Ark is the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian Devil.

We just learned something new about the tasmanian devil… they're SUPER cute as babies!

Just look at the pic (above) of a little Tasmanian Devil joey drinking from a bottle!!

Sooper adorbz!

Every little Devil is a gift because there's a highly contagious disease called Devil facial tumor disease (DFTD).

DFTD could lead to the extinction of of the Tasmanian Devil in the next 20 years!

So these little guys are just that much more precious!

There are over 120 Devils at the Ark and they hope to have 360 by 2016!

Good luck with the breeding! Let's keep these cuties around for future generations to "AWW" at!

Impossibly CUTE Tiny Tortoises Born At Zoo!!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredTurtle

Baby Tortoise

At the Perth Zoo in Australia, thirteen baby Western Swamp Tortoises were born!!

The zoo has been working since 1989 to help conserve these tortoises because they're critically endangered.

They're rebuilding their wild population through their captive breeding/reintroduction program.

Since the program started all those years ago, over 800 tortoises have been born there and 600 of those have been successfully reintroduced into the wild!!

That's ahmayzing!

When these little guys are born they're so crazy small it's ridiculous!

We really realllllly want one! These little guys are painfully cute and we think they'd be perfect just crawling around our hands, all small and cute and tortoisey.

Too adorbz!!
