Nangua Down Undah

Say hello if you will to Bebeh Nangua, who has just come online at the Sydney Taronga Zoo. (“Nangua” means “Pumpkin” in Mandarin. Makes sense.)

They are usually born this color but change to black around their first birthday.

Nangua is a “Leaf Monkey” or François’ langur, a very rare monkey.

He was found in his mum’s arms back on November 7th.




  1. Mary (the first) says:

    He’s beyond cute!!

  2. That remarkable baby face – so old, yet so new! Another species I didn’t know about until CO. Must subscribe again to National Geographic. And yes, Pumpkin is definitely an appropriate name! 🙂

  3. Never heard of this type of monkey before…what an adorable baby!

  4. Looks like a baby gollum, only cuter.

  5. Love how his hair makes him look like a kewpie doll!

  6. Little guy reminds me of my brother at that age-bright red hair, which turned blonde when he got older.

  7. Whoever designed the Teletubbies must have seen one of these.

  8. Alice Shortcake says:

    He looks like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals!
