The Greenville Zoo announced Thursday the baby siamang born Jan. 6 to Oscar and Ella is a male. The baby is the pair’s second offspring, providing George, their two-year-old, with a baby brother.

Zoo staff originally planned to hold a naming contest, but they have decided to name the baby Arthur Jr. (AJ) in honor of his late uncle, Arthur, whose birthday he shares, zoo director Jeff Bullock said in a news release.
