Lowland Gorilla Born At Brookfield Zoo

Whatever you do, don’t make any jokes about Brookfield Zoo’s newest gorilla monkeying around — gorillas are apes, not monkeys, and probably hate puns. 18-year-old western lowland gorilla Koola gave birth to a female at Brookfield Zoo on Monday, November 4th. Both mother and baby seem healthy and happy.
