An adorable primate has found a new home with Tasmania Zoo.
Cinta, an 11-year-old Javan gibbon, found her way to Tasmania Zoo as part of a program to assist her species.
Tasmania Zoo owner Rochelle Penney said Cinta was very special.
"[The species is] critically endangered. There are less than 2300 in the wild remaining," she said.
"We are very excited. We have been waiting for a long time for Cinta."
The zoo was meant to acquire Cinta before COVID-19, but the pandemic placed hurdles in the way.
Since she arrived a week ago, Ms Penney said Cinta had settled in well and was curious about her visitors.
"[Cinta] comes down to say hello," she said.
