The individual is the fourth case of gibbon babies born and raised in the country. He was successfully hand raised for the first time in the country [1]. Because there was a problem with his mother's childcare, he was separated from his mother thirty-four to thirty-five hours after birth. His weight was 400 g at that time [1] but rose to 2,800 g at the age of one year, eight months [2].
