Our friends at the Cincinnati Zoo aren’t only into protecting and preserving animals; they are also into doing the same thing for plants. In this week’s Focus on Technology, Ann Thompson reports on efforts to save endangered plant species by using test tube reproduction.
You've got to look really closely, but it is amazing to see this tiny sifaka (SEE-fah-kah) clinging to its mother's chest. The baby boy weighed just slightly more than three ounces when it was born September 3 to mother Wilhelmina and father Rinaldo at the Cincinnati Zoo.
The baby, which hasn't been named yet, will continue to cling to the front of its mother for the first few weeks, and eventually move onto her back for the next six months. It'll take a year for it to reach full maturity.
