TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)--Manhattan's Sunset Zoo unveiled its newest animal addition, just in time for Earth Day Sunday.--a pair of white-handed gibbons native to Southeast Asia. Their names are Leslie and Dempsey.

The new pair will live in the newly constructed John Woodard Memorial Gibbons Exhibit located along the Asian Forest Trail.

The exhibit was made possible by local dentist doctor Rich Woodard and his family and kicked off with a big celebration at the Sunset Zoo Saturday.
