Like gorillas, animals or just cool stories? From the Smithsonian’s National Zoo account on YouTube:
“For the first time in nine years, primate staff at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo are celebrating the birth of a male western lowland gorilla. He was born at 6:25 p.m. April 15 and is named Moke [Mo-KEY], which means “junior” or “little one” in the Lingala language. The parents—15 year old mother Calaya and 26-year-old father Baraka—bred in summer 2017 following a recommendation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan (SSP).”

It’s a graphic video but amazing to see—especially the mom’s reaction. Here’s the full story.

Bonus video: A cheetah jumps inside a vehicle during an African safari (below).
