A baby gorilla made its public debut on Wednesday at the Philadelphia Zoo.
Honi, a 21-year-old western lowland gorilla born in the Bronx Zoo, gave birth on Friday. The sex is unknown because mama is holding her newborn too closely for staff to check, but both mom and baby appear healthy, according to a zoo press release.
Honi and 31-year-old Motuba are the proud parents of the first baby gorilla born in the zoo in about 20 years. The family and another female gorilla, Kira, live in the Peco Primate Preserve.
