Baby Gorilla Kamoli


Born: May 23, 2013
Home: Columbus Zoo & Aquarium

All About Baby: Born a 5 lb. little munchkin (actually a healthy weight for a baby gorilla), Kamoli's mother demonstrated a surprising lack of maternal skills -- so the animal care team at Columbus Zoo has stepped up to raise him in an environment that provides "around-the-clock, neonatal care and nurturing." Little Kamoli will be observed in the coming months to see whether a surrogate mother might be suitable for him. However, before you jump to the task, just know they're looking for a gorilla.
