Prague Zoo welcomes gorgeous new baby gorilla
- Filed under:
Proud new gorilla mum Kijivu has welcomed her fourth baby at Prague Zoo.
It's good news for the 19-year-old mum after she tragically lost her five-year-old male Tatu when he accidentally hung himself last summer.
Mum and baby, who was born on 22 December 2012, are both doing well, according to the zoo.
Zookeepers are keeping their distance for a while to let mother and baby bond, so the sex of the newborn is yet to be identified.
The two spend most of their time playing, and the baby's name will be put to public vote in the spring.
We think it's just about the cutest thing we've ever seen...
