This Monkey Babe Looks Just Like a Monchhichi

When I was little, I went through a phase of collecting Monchhichi figurines, remember those all you kids of the 80s?! I haven't thought of them in years until I saw this lil face and it came rushing back.
Meet Elke, an infant Francois Langur born at Sydney's Taronga Zoo. Newborns are bright red or orange all over, but this color changes slowly and reaches black by one year of age. A critically endangered species, there are only around 1,000 of these leaf-eating monkeys still in northeast Vietnam – see one more photo of the rare babe when you read more.
