Frankfurt Zoo introduced the world to its new pride and joy on Wednesday.
The baby of an 11-year-old gorilla named Shira.
The baby gorilla, who hasn’t yet been given a name, was born on Thursday as part of the Zoo’s captive breeding programme.
According to the Zoo’s Director, Manfred Niekisch, the baby gorilla seems healthy and strong and is exceptionally big for its age. The sex of the baby gorilla is still not yet known.
