ONTD_Political's PotD: November 6, 2010.


This photo made available by the Zoological Society of London on Wednesday Oct. 27, 2010 shows first-time mother Mjukuu, a western lowland gorilla with her newly born male baby resting on straw in an enclosure at the London Zoo. Mjukuu gave birth to the healthy baby on Oct. 26, 2010, following a straightforward labor, which was closely monitored by the Zoo’s vets and keepers. Zoological director David Field said: "Mother and baby are both doing brilliantly, although it’s still early days. ‘Aunties’ Zaire and Effie were at the birth and have remained with Mjukuu throughout." Keepers are yet to name the tiny male, who will grow up to become a twenty-five stone (158 kilo -350 pound) silverback gorilla.
