Here's the mom, the dad and the baby! If you hang out enough with gorillas, you'll get to see some precious moments. As we've reported in the past, Daddy Gorilla Nkosi does not spend a great deal of time with the other members of the family, but when he does, he makes it count. He ambled over for a visit with Olympia while Apollo was sleeping on her chest. She stood up and they embraced. Gotta love how little Apollo just keeps clinging right through this whole episode!
