Gorilla Baby in DC

12 Jan

I don’t know why this makes me happy, but on this rotten Monday, it really does.

A baby gorilla was born at the National Zoo. According to the zoo,

The gorilla birth is significant for the Zoo. Western lowland gorillas, which are native to tropical forests of West and Central Africa, are listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, primarily due to habitat loss and fragmentation and poaching.

No joke – there is a video of the mom carrying the baby gorilla around, and feeding it. Must See.
