Did you hear? A western lowland gorilla named Mandara gave birth last Saturday at Smithsonian’s National Zoo. The little one (gender to be determined) is Mandara’s sixth baby and marks the seventh successful gorilla birth at the zoo since 1991.
Our sister blog Around the Mall has all the details. You can view more of the cuteness, including a video interview with Great Ape Keeper Amanda Bania, at the zoo’s Flickr photostream.
