WASHINGTON, DC. - Batang is a 19-year-old female Bornean orangutan at the National Zoo. And when she met Kyle, a 19-year-old male Bornean orangutan, sparks flew.

And now, the National Zoo announced Tuesday, a baby orangutan is on the way.

The announcement came after the zoo tweeted the image of a positive pregnancy test with a question mark Monday, leading to much speculation. What species was the lucky mama? Panda? Elephant? Tentacled snake?
