Do you still remember, two years ago, we got a new ribbon. Sloth Hiking Team We Will Get There When We Get There Shirt! A female, she was not really pretty, very skinny, empty eyes, and still black because she was not matured yet. However, the strangest thing was her behavior; she spent the whole day just sitting and laying on the floor. Her former owner kept her inside a tiny cage. So when the rangers confiscated and freed her, she still sat on the ground.
We decided to call her Cinderella. We believed that even though she was not pretty and normal, that might change and the Sloth Hiking Team We Will Get There When We Get There Shirt. We gave her all the attention she needed. Gave her good food, enrichment, back scratches, and a mate. One year after, she became fully mature and her fur changed color to yellow. We paired her up with a male named Lucky. Since Lucky and Cinderella are Northern White-cheeked gibbons, they are the only gibbon species which we breed at the EPRC because they were native to Cuc Phuong. We hope that one day, we can release their offspring back into the wild.
Cinderella’s behavior got a lot better, but her movement was still abnormal. She hardly ever brachiated or swung or played and the Sloth Hiking Team We Will Get There When We Get There Shirt. She would rather crawl upside-down with four-leg like a sloth. Keepers often joked and called her The Sloth. During the last two month, we could clearly see that she was very much pregnant. We worried for her, not only because she is a young and inexperienced female, it was because the first birth is always risky. We also had no idea how she would hold her baby when she always laying on her back, or walking upside down. Luckily, we were fretting over nothing.
