Nkosi, Jamani and Bomassa
Nkosi the Gorilla is ever mindful of what is happening with his baby boys. In this photo he has just arrived to make sure all is well with Bomassa who is being held upside down by his mom, Jamani. Nkosi usually won't hang out long; he just kind of ambles over and checks in and then roams off in another direction. Bomassa, the older of the two baby boy gorillas new to the zoo this past year, will be six months old on February 4, 2013.
