Baby gorilla makes public debut at San Diego Zoo
Dec. 31, 2014
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The public is getting its first glimpse of a four-day-old baby gorilla at the San Diego Zoo.
The still-unnamed male was born Dec. 26 to mother Jessica and father Paul Donn.
Visitors to the zoo on Tuesday were able to see the newborn when Jessica brought him to a glass-enclosed viewing area. Zookeepers say she has been cradling and nursing the baby, who weighs just a few pounds.
She also carries the little one around as she forages for food.
Jessica has five other offspring, but this is her first with Paul Donn, who is a now four-time father.
