San Diego Zoo’s ape has baby while on birth control

Surprise!

An ape at the San Diego Zoo got pregnant and had a baby – while on birth control.

Eloise is a 37-year-old Siamang, a species of gibbon found in the tropical forests of Malaysia and Indonesia.

The last time she and her partner had a baby was 12 years ago, and zookeepers didn’t even know she was pregnant with the couple’s seventh baby.

They said they don’t know why the birth control didn’t work, but they’re thrilled with the new addition.
