SAN DIEGO- An adorable baby silvered leaf monkey needs some human attention at the San Diego Zoo in California.

She was born earlier this month to a first time mother, who was having trouble holding her baby properly so she could nurse. Zoo officials have been bottle feeding the orange bundle of joy, while letting her spend a lot of time with her family so they can all bond.

Silvered leaf monkeys are a rare species from Asia. They're born orange but become silver as they mature.
