A new endangered species of ape was discovered in the tropical rainforests of Asia by its unique song, German scientists said Tuesday.

The new species of crested gibbon, considered one of the most endangered primate species in the world, is found around the rainforests of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. It is called the Northern Buffed-cheeked Gibbon, Nomascus annamensis, a statement by the German Primate Center (DPZ) said.

Christian Roos, from the DPZ, said the discovery was a “minor sensation.”

“An analysis of the frequency and tempo of their calls, along with genetic research, show that this is, in fact, a new species,” the statement said.
