New Gorilla Baby at the NC Zoo

Sweet gorilla baby Bomassa at the North Carolina Zoo

Bomassa was born August 4 to mother Jamani, a Western lowland gorilla who lives at the Forest Glade exhibit. He is the son of the silverback Nkosi, and he's got a half brother as well, born just a few weeks later.  I'll plan on posting here from time to time so we can all watch these precious babies grow.
