Photos Of San Diego Zoo’s Newborn Gorilla

San Diego Zoo welcomed the birth of a new baby gorilla last month. I just found the photos on ZooBorn, a blog that you maybe interested in if you’re into newborn animals. The details of the birth are documented on the ZooBorn post, so jump on over there to read up. Otherwise, enjoy these photos and have a good weekend!

  1. Now everyone is talking about the American economy and eclections, nice to read something different. Eugene

  2. Is is really neccesary to take the babies from their Mother? I notice the zoos do this a lot…

    1. “Unfortunately, after delivering her baby Azizi did not show the strong mothering skills that we had all hoped for. She was very protective of the infant but did not carry him close enough to her chest to give him the opportunity to nurse. After two days the infant had not been observed nursing nor had Azizi been in frequent close contact with him. This raised concern that his body temperature was dropping since he was unable to thermo regulate. There were also concerns of dehydration. After much discussion with veterinarians and management staff the decision was made to intervene.”
