A male western lowland gorilla was born in Smithsonian’s National Zoo, which let the stuff to celebrate as he is the first in 9 years! They called him Moke, which means ‘’little one’’.
The mama was taken on video kissing her baby on the lips after just giving birth to him. The mama gorilla, Calaya, 15, coupled up with Baraka, 26-year-old 450-pound gorilla, immediately before 3 years when she arrived at the zoo.
What makes this giving birth special is that the wild western lowland gorillas are endangered through the last 20-25 years. What a great moment! Watch the video below.
