Baby girl orangutan makes her public debut at San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The miracle of life gives us a warm moment this Friday, and it's pretty cute too.

A mother orangutan showed off her brand new baby for the first time Friday at the San Diego Zoo. The female Sumatran orangutan was born two weeks ago. This was the first time her very protective mother, Indah, brought her out for the public to see.

The animal care staff said the little primate is healthy, nursing, and being very well taken care of by her mom.

If you can't make it out to the zoo, you can always watch them on the zoo's Ape Cam.
