mom and newborn






What should we call her?: Unnamed baby gorilla born at the Lincoln Park Zoo
The Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago welcomed a yet to be named baby gorilla this week that will be on view for visitors on Saturday
The baby does not yet have a name but the zoo is taking suggestions from donors
The newborn will join six other gorillas including her 2-year-old half-sisters Nayembi and Patty, born at the zoo in fall 2012
She will also be on view with her dad Kwan, a 25-year-old silverback and her 27-year-old mom Bahati in the zoo's Regenstein Center for African Apes

7. Better be careful... I once had a nursing mom Chimpanzee breast pic censored from photobucket.

But oh yes, our cousin and her baby are beautiful.

I would very much like this world to be a safe place for gorillas and the rest of our hominid kin.
