7 reasons why you should look at this baby orangutan

Born a few days ago at Chester Zoo. Look at his little face.

1. It’s Tuesday (or in some cases ‘Tearful Tuesday’, if it’s been a rough weekend). It’s mid-afternoon. You need a little pick-me-up:

2. The baby’s mother Emma the Orangutan was also born at Chester Zoo in 1987, and undoubtedly she’s very proud of her new arrival:

3. But keep it down for the love of God! Can’t you see there’s a baby trying to sleep?
