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?

4. The new arrival doesn’t have a name yet. You should obviously spend the next three minutes coming up with one:

5. If you’re looking at the baby orangutan, you might as well look at some other Chester Zoo babies… like Rebecca and Daley the otters:
