ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The Albuquerque BioPark Zoo had its first ever "gender reveal" party Saturday morning for its newest arrival.
"One of the keepers came up with this suggestion," zoo manager Lynn Tupa said. "I didn't even know what it was when she came up to me. I was like, 'A gender reveal?'
"So it was just a fun way to announce that we have a little girl orang out there"
The zoo gave the orangutans a box to open revealing pink paper and that the baby was a little girl.
She was born two weeks ago to her mom Sara.
The pregnancy was a surprise to the zoo because she was on birth control at the time.
The public is of course invited to name the new baby.
"We doing a baby-naming contest so everybody can go onto Facebook and vote there or come down here and pick their favorite name," Tupa said.
Meanwhile the female giraffe born on April 20 now has a name. Abiquiú, or Abi for short, was the most popular.
The second favorite was Gisele.
