It's a girl! The Los Angeles Zoo welcomed a baby Bornean orangutan to its family.

There's no word on her name just yet. She has an older sister who was born in 2005.

This is the second baby for the zoo's female Bornean orangutan.

With the upcoming Halloween celebration, zoo keepers plan to give the family pumpkin treats on Friday.

According to a statement from zoo officials, orangutans are native to the Indonesian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Bornean orangutans are endangered and Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered.

In the last 60 years, it's estimated that there has been more than a 50 percent decline in the orangutan population. This decline is primarily attributed to habitat loss.
