Rollie embraces her newborn in the video as she naps in a play area filled with hay, and the baby snuggles close to his mother’s chest while peering about the enclosure, taking in his first views of the world.

Rollier and her family live in the Regenstein Center for African Apes.

Zoo staff said the ape exhibit will remain closed until noon Wednesday as the primate community gets used to the new addition and the baby gets acclimated with his new surroundings.
