Quy Bau the monkey enjoys a refreshing bath after being born in captivity


This is the heartwarming moment a rare monkey, Quy Bau (which means precious) enjoys a bath after being born in captivity.

Footage shows zoo keepers at Philadelphia Zoo clean and feed the François’ langur monkey named Qúy Báu, which means ‘precious’ in Vietnamese, after she was ignored by her mother Mei Mei.

The one-month-old, who is the first of her species to be bred at the zoo, has now bonded with her mother and father Chester.


During a clip shared by the zoo, the small animal clings onto a zoo keeper’s hand as they dip her into the water.

The young creature is then wrapped in a warm blanket and fed before joining her parents.

Sharing the arrival of the new monkey the zoo posted on Facebook: ‘We’re so excited to introduce the newest member of our Zoo family – a baby François’ langur.
