Chiang Mai Zoo has proclaimed that it will consolidate a naming competition for a baby red-shanked douc monkey, the sixth of its kind in the zoo.
Niphon Wichairat the Director of Chiang Mai Zoo said the zoo newly welcomed its new member, red-shanked douc monkey whose sex was still obscure. Its father is six-year-old “Boo” and mother is five-year-old “Nang.” A naming competition for the baby monkey will happen soon.
Red-shanked douc monkeys are bright since there are five shades everywhere on their body. They live in gatherings and normally rest in the wake of consuming. They are found in rainforests in Laos and northern Vietnam. In Thailand, red-shanked douc monkeys can be seen in Chiang Mai Zoo in Chiang Mai, Dusit Zoo in Bangkok and Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Chon Buri territory.
