USA: Too cute! BABY GORILLA is a fuzzy ball of charm

A four-week old male baby western lowland gorilla drew visitors to the San Diego Zoo on Friday, as mother Jessica cradled the hairy infant in her arms.

The 2.3-kilogramme (five-pound) infant is part of a troop that also includes its 34-year-old mother, troop leader Paul Donn, 26, and another female, 20-year-old Ndijia. The baby gorilla is now more alert and is beginning to learn about the social dynamics of his troop by observing other members.

The western lowland gorilla is one of two subspecies of the western gorilla that lives in the mountains, forests and lowland swamps in central Africa. Among the smartest of primates, about 550 live in zoos worldwide.
