Another highlight this year for the Buffalo Zoo -- The birth of a Western Lowland Gorilla!

The baby was born  September 4 to mother Lily, 12 and father, Koga, 26. According to WGRZ:

Lily has displayed strong maternal instincts and is taking great care of the troop’s latest addition. Keepers have not been able to get close enough to the baby to determine its gender, though they believe it is a girl. Both mother and baby are doing well.

 

Officials have not yet named the baby for they have not been able to get close enough to tell if it is a male or female although, many believe that it is a girl.
