Woodland Park Zoo’s baby gorilla doing well, starting to crawl
SEATTLE — The Woodland Park Zoo’s 6-week-old baby gorilla now weighs 7 pounds, is doing well and has a healthy appetite, the zoo said Monday.
Officials released a video of the baby’s veterinary checkup below:
The zoo said the female baby is now starting to crawl and that “several times a day the keepers provide opportunities for first-time mom Nadiri and her baby to interact. During these patient introductions, Nadiri is given the choice to be with her baby and the introductions have remained positive. In the coming weeks, we’ll be looking to you all to help give our beautiful baby a name fitting her personality and special story. ”
