Taronga Zoo’s baby chimp has been named Sudi

Cards close to her chest: Mum Shiba, 33, is keeping the baby so close that zookeepers have been unable to determine the bub’s gender.

The new baby chimp will be the youngest of Shiba’s four children.

Not letting go: Shiba holds on to her baby at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. She is believed to have given birth to the child on Saturday.

Monkey play: Visitors to the zoo have been promised a better view of the baby in the weeks to come.

Happy chimp: Keepers spotted the newborn baby in the chimpanzee’s night den on Saturday morning.

There it is! Keepers have not been able to get close enough to Simba’s new baby to determine the monkey’s gender.

Sweet slumber: The new baby has some shut eye in Simba’s lap.
