Baby Gorilla Looks Like Real Life Stuffed Animal!

Baby Gorilla

It's a boy!!

A beautiful, baby boy Gorilla was born at Columbus Zoo on May 23rd.

The 5-pound cutie was born to proud parents Kambera and Oliver.

Since Kambera was a first time mom and didn't have very good maternal skills, the zoo's animal care experts are raising the little guy themselves.

It sounds sad, maybe even cruel, but if that baby wasn't going to get grade-A care from his mama, we're glad the zookeepers are going to raise the baby ape.

He is being raised in a nurturing environment where he receives around-the-clock care!

That's so great!

They are making sure to raise the little cutie in close proximity to his mama Kambera, at least. They hope to be able to reunite them soon!

He's such a little cutie pie we bet his mama can't wait til he's back in her arms!

great apes threatened by poachers(1)

The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!

The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!

Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.

The numbers are cray cray!

gorillas ed(1)

Motion-triggered digital camera traps have given scientists a brand new way to study wild animals. And this method gets up close and personal!!

Managed by Conservation International, the network has deployed camera traps across 16 sites in Asia, Africa and Latin America, at each site, the traps collect up to 60,000 images every year - which may help scientists collect data that would have otherwise taken years to organize.

(Above) is only one of the many wild animals' portraits that have been taken, and we hope to see much MORE of these pictures.

We can't stop until we get enough!!!

See more animals… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
