Zoo Atlanta has a lot to celebrate.
West lowland gorilla Kudzoo, 22, and silverback Taz, 27, welcomed their third addition to the family on Sunday. The female newborn can be seen holding onto her mother’s leg in an adorable photo posted by Zoo Atlanta’s Facebook page on Monday afternoon.
“We’re thrilled to present Willie B.’s newest granddaughter! Kudzoo the western lowland gorilla gave birth yesterday afternoon. She’s the newest ambassador for a critically endangered species, and she also happens to be the cutest little gal in Atlanta,” Zoo Atlanta wrote.
According to ZooAtlanta.org, the newborn is the 23rd gorilla to be born at the zoo since the Ford African Rain Forest opened in 1988.
