When a party celebrates a birth and announces your new name, that means you'll get more presents, right? During a celebration on January 19,2015, the Saint Louis Zoo finally revealed the name of the baby Sumatran orangutan that was born in December -- Ginger. The zoo had put the name to an online vote earlier this month.

Within her colorfully decorated habitat, mama orangutan Merah collected gifts of cranberries and lettuce, played with crepe paper and hugged Ginger as she swung around on vines. After the party, Riverfront Times photographer Micah Usher shot views from other nearby habitats.
