It’s a Girl! Baby Gorilla at Massachusetts Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo’s gorilla Kiki gave birth to a little girl on November 3rd. Since the birth, Kiki has been a doting mother, keeping her baby in her arms at all times. Kiki’s other daughters have expressed interest in the baby, and eventually, they will take part in rearing the little one. This practice prepares them for when they have their own babies. There will be a contest on December 17 to name the newest addition.
