Baby gorilla update


The baby gorilla is doing very well and the doctors from Children's Hospital were extremely pleased at how well the surgical incision is healing. She's using her arms and legs normally and is picking up weight. She and mother Amanda are out in the exhibit intermittently most days that it's warmer (anything under 45 degrees and they stay in where it's toasty!).

  3. The entire team, surgeons, zoo staff, volunteers and all, deserve a huge round of applause for putting all of their talent and care into helping this baby gorilla. This is what makes our world a better place -- cohabiting and helping living creatures, no matter what species. Thank you for making the world a warmer place.
