Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium welcomed a Bornean orangutan on November 19.  

Mom, dad, and baby are all on display in Hubbard Orangutan Valley.

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium houses eight orangutans, including its newest one. 

The infant, who is believed to be a female, was born to first-time mother, Sepilok, and father, Chip. 

Sepilok was born in Hong Kong in 2001 and came to Omaha in 2003. Chip was born in Rochester, NY in 1993 and arrived in Omaha in 1998. Chip is the Zoo’s eldest orangutan, at 21 years-of-age.
