A baby Sumatran Orangutan named Tripa is really attached to his mom!
In fact, since Tripa's birth, his mom Emma has not let him out of her sight!
And he was born all the way back on October 19.
The two spend their time together at the United Kingdom’s Chester Zoo.
Young Orangutans are the only other species, besides humans, whose childhoods can last up to eight years!
So it isn't any surprise to zookeepers that Tripa is by his mama's side.
After all, he depends on her for food, transportation, and love!
The three keys to any mammal's heart!!
The Sumatran Orangutan is an endangered species, so we're SUPER glad this baby is being carefully watched by his mama.
Take care of that cutie!
