Oregon Zoo Has New Baby Orangutan

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Zoo has a new baby orangutan. Twenty-year-old Kitra gave birth last Wednesday, and officials say the baby appears to be healthy. Before the birth, zoo staff got Kitra used to ultrasounds and they used a stuffed animal to train her how to hold the baby and how to nurse. She's being kept in a private maternity area. Zoo staff keeps a hands-off approach, but they're closely monitoring the pair to make sure everything goes well.
