The newest western lowland gorilla at St. Paul’s Como Zoo rests on top of her napping mother.

The female baby was born last week, Oct.18, inside the Gorilla Forest exhibit day room to mother Alice. At approximately four pounds at birth, the baby gorilla appears healthy, strong, and is bonding with Alice.

This is the second birth for Alice and the third gorilla birth in Como’s 56-year history of caring for gorillas. Photo courtesy of Como Zoo
