Endangered gibbon mum gives birth again at Noah's Ark Zoo Farm
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall is celebrating the autumn birth of an endangered gibbon this week.
The little ape, affectionately named Sam, will soon be a fun playmate for his eager brothers, two-year-old Sultana and mischievous one-year-old little Sidney.
The cheeky brothers are already intrigued by the new bundle of black fur nestled in their mum Salome's arms.
After having difficulties nursing in the past, Salome’s family has now grown by one annually for the past three seasons.

Siamangs are endangered in the wild and at serious risk from human interference in their native habitats, particularly from the illegal pet trade and habitat destruction by the Palm Oil industry in Asia.
Both dad Samson and mum Salome are part of a European Endangered Species Programme (EEP) for managed breeding, with Samson coming to Noah’s Ark from Banham Zoo and Salome from Twycross Zoo.
Primate Keeper Clare Pearce said: “I’m so pleased for Salome and Samson that they have another little infant to look after and they’re growing family is doing so well. We’re really glad to be providing a good enriched home for these important apes, which seem to be thriving here at Noah’s Ark.”
